This book has won the Richard Heyman Award in recognition of Outstanding Literary Achievement.

The moving poetry book “Crossing The Threshold: Voice of a Black Woman” by Arida Wright will be displayed by self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The literary festival will take place on April 22-23, 2023, at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA.

“Crossing The Threshold” is a collection of poetry wherein Arida Wright attempts to discover her voice on racism and prejudice and share how she has been personally affected by both.

Wright is a person of African descent living in a predominantly white society. She never dealt with the trauma of loving her white boyfriend in an all-white high school in 1975 until she wrote radical poetry. Wright turns her poems into expressions of love after sharing her anguish.

As the daughter of a woman who grew up in the Jim Crow era, Arida had to deal with the twisted messages she received as a child and is working hard to overcome them to build her own perspectives without hate.

The book highlights the injustices she faces in American society as she examines and learns the ups and downs of burdens placed upon black society. She even questions how blacks can change their current status by empowering themselves through identifying and acknowledging the incredible assets the Creator gave them as a race.

The author hopes her poems will help white people examine their own prejudices and take the first step toward greater understanding and acceptance of people of various races.
