Guadalupe Garcia McCall ´ 1 SUMMARY

CHARACTERS ´ VIVETUMUSICA.CO ´ Guadalupe Garcia McCall SUMMARY ´ All the Stars Denied In a companion novel to her critically acclaimed Shame the Stars Guadalupe Garcia McCall. Not too long ago I wrote about casually scrolling through thirteen or so online English syllabi the first thirteen google results I wanted to write about and address the point that erasure of culture happens in public and private educations The pronounced absence the purposeful omission of Latinxs from American curriculum is a political choice that has devastating conseuences More on those conseuences later I then expanded my English literature syllabi search by tenaciously scrolling through the first one hundred syllabi Lamentably I only found nine syllabi out of the hundred that had works by or about Latinxs on their English literature syllabi Hundreds of works to teach American students and only nine different syllabi offered either token poems seriously one was a haiku excerpts of novels one or two short stories from larger anthologies and then the go to staple House on Mango Street as reflections of our presence within America s literary canon and within America itself So pathetic and disheartening Guadalupe Garcia McCall fills in the yawning cultural gap in American curriculum that political and literary erasure that school curricula perpetuate Her novels Shame the Stars and All the Stars Denied are timely and necessary Readers can t help but have a visceral reaction to all of the trauma done to than half a million American families in the 1930s and to the del Toro family in this novel See GG McCall s Resources for details Americans of Mexican descent were rounded up maliciously separated so as to purposefully stymie a family s reunification and to purposefully stymie the families return to their home states American citizens were deported to a nation they didn t know Beaten mistreated falsely accused of not being US Citizens having their land stolen and then having to further endure the indignity of injustice by pleading one s case to the very people who committed the wrongs against them in the first placethe events of this historic period and their fictional presentation on the pages of this book split my heart in two McCall knows how to make her readers suffer Years of malicious prosecution of undocumented immigrants disappear from the pages of America s newspapers So the timing of GG McCall s work may seem serendipitous but her research reveals that the past one hundred years of America s history has been repeating itself time and time again As a former English Literature teacher I can t help but believe that flooding our students with a inclusive curriculum produces a student population that is politically efficacious The wealth of knowledge that McCall weaves into this text is a boon for American students And the book is just a pleasure to read Who doesn t want to cheer for Estrella Her growth from privileged brat to tough as nails advocate make readers cheer What GG McCall does here in this book is pretty inspiring I know I will read this book again and again Cross Laminated Timber Design long ago I wrote about
