Latinx Heritage Month Keynote Speaker: Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez

This is a past event.

For Latinx Heritage Month, we are excited to welcome a keynote lecture with Storyteller, Public Theologian and Feminist, Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez for a public lecture on her recently released book, For Brown Girls with Sharp Edges and Tender Hearts: A Love Letter to Women of Color. The book is exactly that: It’s a love letter—and an offering. “My liberation was contingent on access to knowledge,” writes Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez, “and I wanted others to have it, too.” Covering topics like imposter syndrome, colorism, the myth of meritocracy, toxic masculinity, and much more, For Brown Girls with Sharp Edges and Tender Hearts offers highly accessible explanations of what ails us as a society, then brings these concepts to life through moving personal stories.
