"They Tried to Bury Us, They Didn't Know We Were Seeds: Art, Activism and the Dream" with Yehimi Cambron

This is a past event.

A public talk with artist Yehimi Cambrón, an undocumented immigrant who became DACAmented as an undergraduate college student at a gender diverse women’s college, Agnes Scott. She notes “deportation is always a possibility…especially being as outspoken and visible as I am…but I will not allow that fear to immobilize or silence me.”

Her art work is a part of the resistance movement towards countering negative stereotypes about immigrants.

During Latinx Heritage Month, it is especially important to create powerful new forms of understanding the history, place and lives of immigrants particularly in challenging xenophobia.

This event is free and open to the public.
