ABOUT THE BOOK:

The Nakba Ends in Gaza gathers a collective Palestinian vision of what a future Gaza could be.

As global solidarity for Palestinian liberation grows, the desire for Gaza-centered texts makes this book a seminal one. As an anthology of Palestinian writers and artists, it also lends itself to the collective effort to organize and center Palestinian voices in the ongoing struggle. Sara Roy’s Unsilencing Gaza, and Natasha Marin’s Black Imagination have done well as political discourse shifts toward futurism as a means of reimagining a better way of living not confined by the violence and limitations of colonialism.
