"Skinned Heart Seis is a zine that discusses Nyky's relationship to her father and the prison-industrial complex, how being a fierce woman of color is often interpreted as "abusiveness" or "craziness" and co-opted by white women, and how "We don't always exist in relation to the white world." Nyky writes about her personal growth in powerful anecdotes while also tying in historical policies that have created the struggles she has to navigate. For anyone who also has a father in prison and has had a complicated/rocky relationship with him, this is a necessary zine with storytelling that hits you hard in the corazón/heart to heal our unshared stories."
