A radical Latina perspective on race, liberation, and identity

Elizabeth Martínez’s unique Chicana voice arises from over thirty years of experience in the movements for civil rights, women’s liberation, and Latina/o empowerment. In De Colores Means All of Us, Martínez presents a radical Latina perspective on race, liberation, and identity. In these essays, Martínez describes the provocative ideas and new movements created by the rapidly expanding U.S. Latina/o community as it confronts intensified exploitation and racism. With sections on women’s organizing, struggles for economic justice and immigrant rights, and the Latina/o youth movement, this book will appeal to readers and activists seeking to organize for the future and build new movements for social change. With a foreword from Angela Y. Davis.


  • Elizabeth Martínez’s work comprises one of themost important living histories of progressive activism in the contemporaryera. . . . [Martínez is] inimitable. . .irrepressible. . .indefatigable.

    Angela Y. Davis
  • Please do yourself a favor and read this essay collection by Elizabeth Martínez! Share it with your friends, students, neighbors. Free yourself from the onslaught of misinformation and ignorance regarding racism in the United States and Latino politics. It is an up-to-date news flash on what is going on regarding Mexicans on both sides of the border. ‘Betita’ (to those of us who know her, love her, and continue to learn from her) is a veteran activist and Chicana pundit of the highest order.

  • Elizabeth Martínez has played a unique and extraordinary role as chronicler of Chicana-Chicano history, and De Colores beautifully captures her passion, her intelligence, her powerful commitment to universal human values. I am very happy this volume exists, and hope it will be widely read.
