Call Me Libertad: Poems Between Borders

by Alicia Partnoy (Editor), Christina Fialho (Editor), and Kristina Shull (Editor)

Call Me Libertad: Poems Between Borders is the first book to combine the voices of people in immigration detention with their family members and allies to design a new narrative and give unprecedented insight into immigration detention. In putting pencil to paper, the authors are claiming their own stories and leaving a record of today’s immigration detention system for future generations. The poems are intermixed with artwork created by people in U.S. immigration detention, who have limited access to therapeutic activities such as writing and drawing.

This electronic book also includes writings by Alicia Partnoy, herself a survivor of political imprisonment in Argentina, and Kristina Shull, who writes eloquently about losing her own marriage to the U.S. immigration detention system. In a preface, Christina Fialho explores how U.S. immigration detention, like many systems of oppression, is designed to isolate us from one another.
