From the organizers:
“This program features an evening of readings and discussions with acclaimed poets Javier Zamora and Raquel Gutiérrez, two participants in the In Plain Sight artist intervention. Sharing roots in El Salvador, they will read selections from their writings that explore experiences of immigration and borderland politics. Following their presentation, they will be joined in conversation by Yansi Pérez, Associate Professor of Spanish and Latin American Studies at Carleton College and author of Más allá del duelo: Otras formas de imaginar, sentir, y pensar la memoria en Centroamérica. At the end of the program, viewers will learn about accessible actions they can take to join the movement against immigrant detention.”
