About this Event
An homage to Gloria Anzaldúa, as well as the Queer and Trans of Color community at Mount Holyoke, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion invite you to this musical and love-centered informal event.
Gloria Anzaldua was a self-described "chicana dyke-feminist, tejana patlache poet, writer, and cultural theorist. Her dedication to rupturing the oppressive world through her own internal spiritual work led to her theories that served as a cornerstone of the Third Wave feminist movement and her writing opened up the door for radical feminist queer of color literature. The Gloria Anzaldúa LLC is named in her honor.
I-SHEA is an eclectic ARTist and musician; she's a.k.a. ‘The Original Jewminican’ who comes from the source of hip hop and raised in the sauce of merengue, bolero, rumba, salsa, reggae, nyabinghi, r&b, soul, and west african rhythms. I-SHEA will lead us through this musical, energizing, and spiritual event. Join us for your lunch break, and break through into new connections, artistic expressions, and perhaps even a new world."
