From the Back Cover
On every page, in every account, from every contributor you will find one profound, universal theme threaded silently and artfully throughout the entire anthology. Again and again, you will find that the answer to the aforementioned question, now unspoken, "What does autism have to do with race?" is a gentle, but resounding,"Everything."
- From Preface by Morénike Giwa Onaiwu

A must-read, in my opinion, for any future therapists, educators, etc who intend to work with autistic clients, because I think it is CRUCIAL that we remember autistic people of color and we hear each other's voices.
Who the book is FOR, though, is autistic people ourselves and particularly autistic people of color, and it is beautiful, broad, and guarantees, no matter who you are, a look into the life of someone far in a different position on the spectrum and in the world from you. These are the kinds of connections that I find so valuable. In our similarities, and in our differences, in every page that is entirely disparate from the last chapter/last author and entirely new.
Each story in this anthology is beneficial to the movement. It gives non-autistic people a peek into what an autistic POC (or BIPOC) goes through in life. Some of us weren't diagnosed until way later in life, while some of us were diagnosed early. Either way, this is the ideal gift for the autistic person in your life. Especially if they are non-White.
This book is also beneficial to academic and public library patrons. There is not enough material about us being published and I consider this book a gem.
TL;Dr - Buy this book, you won't regret it! :)
