Chicago Humanities Festival – November 8

Tickets available here.

In her native Dominican Republic, Rita Indiana is known as La Montra or the monster for her accomplishments as a writer, musician, and theater artist. Most recently she’s been a vocal critic of the country where she was born for its treatment of Haitian immigrants. Writer and critic Achy Obejas, who translated Indiana’s novel Papi, will discuss Indiana’s work and her Caribbean and queer identity. The program will begin with Crossing Paths, a multimedia bilingual performance by first generation immigrant youth.

This bilingual program will offer simultaneous interpretation into Spanish.

This program is generously underwritten by The Chicago Community Trust and is presented in partnership with Cultura in Pilsen, contratiempo, and the Chicago Latino Writers Initiative.
