Event description

Description

For the 2019 Helen Pond McIntyre ’48 Lecture, join Cherríe Moraga, the celebrated activist, writer, and co-editor of the influential anthology This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color (1981), for a reading and discussion of her new memoir, Native Country of the Heart (2019), a love letter to her mother and an intimate portrait of the U.S.-Mexican diaspora. She will speak to the issue of cultural amnesia in the United States and the recuperation of ancestral memory toward the radicalization of political consciousness and activism for the future.

Cosponsored by the Center for the Study of Women and Society; Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and the Caribbean (IRADAC); Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS); and the Provost’s Office at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
