Abstract

A Quiet October is a collection of essays which reflect one mother's journey of navigating the lives of her children through the waves of disquieting oppressive racialized systems in the United States of America. Her journey exposes established systems of oppression in education, medical care, employment, and the failure of the organizations created to provided oversight to protect the rights of people like her children and herself - people of color. But most importantly, it reflects a determination to overcome.
