Can't Stop the Sunrise
Adventures in Healing, Confronting Corruption
& the Journey to Institutional Reform
The debut memoir from Vanessa Osage about coming of age in upper class New England culture and finding a place in the world after a shattering departure from her first home.
A lovingly told recollection of those who make life worthwhile; a fierce rendering of confrontations with white men of privilege; a searching exploration of integrity, and revelations on the challenge of speaking truth to power.
Osage writes in the voice of a poet, a traveler, a professional in the sexual health field, and a dedicated child-safety advocate. The book includes real communications with modern-day school officials, newspaper articles, editorials, and the outline of an oversight and transparency initiative called The Justice CORPS - the Committee to Oversee the Rights & Protections of Students.
Ultimately, Vanessa Osage brings a perspective that just might evolve us all toward greater health.
