About this Event
Gloria Anzaldúa - Joy, Love, Laughter and Latinx Literature
This event is an homage to Gloria Anzaldúa, a self-described “chicana dyke-feminist, tejana patlache poet, writer, and cultural theorist,” whose literary works transformed feminist theory and opened the door for radical writings of feminists of color. This interactive informal gathering is an annual event hosted by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion where we gather to read from great poets, artists, activist scholars and more. We invite all artists and art enthusiasts to join this special tribute to Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous and People of Color artists.
This year’s special guest facilitator is Iréne "I-SHEA'' Shaikly, an eclectic ARTist and musician, aka ‘The Original Jewminican.’ I-SHEA will teach us African-Caribbean drum techniques and rhythms in an interactive, high energy, and spiritual space to release, (re)connect, (re)claim, and rejoice in the presence of self and others. Drums and instruments will be provided.
To learn more about I-SHEA, please visit their website.
Light refreshments will be served and a raffle for five copies of Gloria Anzaldúa books will be offered.
