Women's History Month Kick-Off Event: Denice Frohman
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Location: Multicultural Center
Description: DENICE FROHMAN is an award-winning poet, writer, performer, educator and speaker, whose work explores the intersections of race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and the “in-betweeness” that exists in us all. Her poetry focuses on social change, and explores the tension between the stories we tell about ourselves, the ones told about us, and the ones we tell about each other. As a queer woman from a multi-cultural background (Puerto Rican and Jewish), her work seeks to disrupt traditional notions of power, and celebrate the parts of ourselves deemed unworthy.

Opening Act: Cultural Expressions 6:30pm
Refreshments provided by Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority Inc.
In collaboration with Feminist Action Alliance, Casa Latina, Gwendolyn Brooks Cultural Center, LGBT*QA Resource Center
