“Colloquium Under a Palm Tree”
A reading with Minh Nguyen, Jacobo Zambrano-Rangel, Ana García, Asha Ransby-Sporn, Andres Hernandez, Natalia Piland and Jeremy Sublewski that responds to Gloria Anzaldúa’s text “La Prieta” from This Bridge Called My Back (1983), and Cuban anthropologist Fernando Ortiz’s ideas on ‘transculturation’ and the confluences of different cultural experiences in how personal and political memory is formed, shredded, and re-stitched.

Light refreshments will be served. A microphone will be used for amplification. Service animals are permitted. We ask that everyone attending please refrain from using scented products. Our space is barrier free.

Threewalls is located at 2738 West North Avenue near the northeast corner of California Avenue, along the North Avenue (#72) and California Avenue (#52) bus routes.
