Honoring the Ancestor, Gloria Anzaldúa: Joy, Love and Liberation featuring Latinx Writers with Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez

This is a past event.

Please join the DEI Office as we celebrate our 3rd annual LGBTQ History Month and Latinx Heritage Month collaborative event, “Honoring the Ancestor, Gloria Anzaldúa: Love, Joy, Laughter, Liberation and Latinx Literature.” 

We invite community members to gather in the Unity Center in Blanchard Hall and read passages and poetry from our favorite Latinx, Queer and Trans writers in spanish and in english. Gloria Anzaldúa was a self-described “chicana dyke-feminist, tejana patlache poet, writer, and cultural theorist” whose work continues to resonate across generations and borders.

Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez

Our very special guest for this event is the incredible founder of @latinarebels and author of the new book, For Brown Girls with Sharp Edges and Tender Hearts: A Love Letter to Women of Color, Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez. We will have light refreshments from Crave Holyoke provided for those that want to grab lunch. All are welcome.

Prisca will also give the keynote lecture for Latinx Heritage Month in a virtual talk at 7:00pm EST.
