Proclamation of Independence is a collection of life stories told by women students in the Second Start Adult Literary Program.  During the interviews students told story after story of their lives and "the search deep within your soul to find your true inner spirit and reason for being Women of Oakland."

This book is an announcement of personal freedom and total self-reliance; the declaration that you are an individual of worth and value.  The stories talk about learning to read and write, marriage and relationships, abuse, work, migration, families and relationships.

The stories are presented at an advanced level (Levels 3-4).  Stories from the same writers appear in Quest for Life (580-0004), told at a beginner to intermediate level.  Illustrated with black and white photos of the writers.

Selected for the Public Library Association's Top Titles for Adult New Readers, 2000.
