Through an examination of the poetry of Anne Sexton, Audre Lorde, and Gloria Anzaldua, We Heal From Memory paints a vivid picture of how our culture carries a history of traumatic violence - child sexual abuse, the ownership and enforcement of women's sexuality under slavery, the transmission of violence through generations, and the destruction of non-white cultures and their histories through colonization. According to Cassie Premo Steele, the poetry of Sexton, Lorde, and Anzaldua allows us to witness and to heal from such disparate traumatic events.
