Three Family Diversity Projects exhibits have been published in book form by University of Massachusetts Press and New Press in New York City. We hope you will order them for your libraries and display them alongside the exhibition you show.
Love Makes a Family:
Portraits of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Parents and Their Families
“Through sensitive photos and plainspoken autobiographical sketches, (the book) outlines the challenges that nontraditional families face and how, as Minnie Bruce Pratt writes in her foreword, their members are the ‘heart of each others’ heart.”
– Publishers Weekly
In Our Family: Portraits of All Kinds of Families
This exhibit was used as the centerpiece in the creation of an integrated model curriculum on diversity at a public middle school, and we have just published a 200 page Curriculum/Resource Guide for use in schools (K-12) and for staff training.
Nothing to Hide: Mental Illness in the Family
“The photographs and interviews give a dignity and humanity to patients and their families, as well as providing a real sense of the day-to-day difficulties of living with mental illness. This book is both wonderful and important.”
Kay Redfield Jamison Ph.D., author of The Unquiet Mind
“This wonderful book will touch the heart of anyone who has been close to mental illness. It is a book that everyone should read.”
Lesley Stahl, co-editor 60 Minutes
Of Many Colors: Portraits of Multiracial Families
“I was very moved by this book … it is effective both because it is important scholarship and because it contains such profoundly moving human stories. By letting the members of these families speak for themselves, the author and photographer capture the diversity of their experiences. I especially like the fact that even the children are allowed to speak their mind; after all it is they who are often the undeserving recipients of bigotry.”
Sonia Nieto, Author of Affirming Diversity
