Present. Showcase. Disrupt. Question.
Explore. Investigate. Converse. Learn.
2LP EXPLORATIONS IN DIVERSITY is a series that examines the past, present and future of diversity and inclusivity in America. It’s a series that presents a myriad of perspectives that have either been elided or not delved into about American society and culture. It’s a series that showcases personal narratives and literature that engage in honest and meaningful conversations. It’s a series that disrupts the status quo; that breaks long-held codes of silence; and poses uncomfortable questions that often don’t have clear-cut answers or solutions. It’s a series that explores how diverse opinions can shape ongoing conversations. It’s a series that investigates such topics as freedom of speech and thought, religious pluralism, anti-racism, feminism, police and prisons, and democracy studies. It’s a series that reaches readers from all walks of life because it’s not academic in nature and theory, and is accessible to all. We believe there is a high demand for books outside academia to present a simpler and conversational tone in both structure and style that introduces new concepts and ideas for a non-academic audience that can be also used within academia as well.
2LP EXPLORATIONS IN DIVERSITY’s purpose is twofold: to feature critical thinking across politics and the social sciences from new and established scholars and authors that explore a wide range of topics; and to publish books in the form of creative non-fiction, including memoir, life-writing, literary reportage and essays that introduce fresh new perspectives to readers. We want to make a difference in the world.
2Leaf Press has publishes three volumes under the 2LP EXPLORATIONS IN DIVERSITY series: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE WHITE IN AMERICA: BREAKING THE WHITE CODE OF SILENCE, A COLLECTION OF PERSONAL NARRATIVES (2016); BLACK LIVES HAVE ALWAYS MATTERED (2017); and THE BEIGING OF AMERICA (2017).
