About the Book

"This collection is deeply moving, sensitive and courageous"

  • Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient

"Sometimes a book teaches me, sometimes brings tears of recognition,
sometimes connects me profoundly with our ongoing struggles for justice and respect.
This beautiful creation is all these gifts in a voice as clear and deep
as the pool from which we all long to drink."

  • Chrystos, Acclaimed Artist, Writer, and Activist

Uninhabiting the Violence of Silencing is an adventurous and powerful collection of poetry, short essays, and artworks anchored in Naguib’s personal journey as an artist, writer, activist, and seeker. This collection is not for the faint of heart or conviction; it is, however, a gem! Packed with jarring, tender, raging, heartfelt, and honest explorations, Naguib’s writings and artwork almost emerge from each page startling, jumping from political criticism to the fundamentals of humanity to her personal journey as a woman, an indigenous person, and an individual committed to social conscience and justice. Uninhabiting the Violence of Silencing is a book meant to inspire the hearts of those already committed to breaking silences and for those awakening to the possibilities.
