Award-Winning Journalist Raquel Cepeda to challenge the absurdity of the black-white national conversation about the American dream.
The American Dream, Raquel Cepeda, award-winning journalist, critic, filmmaker, and autobiographer, argues, is a pipedream for some and a birthright for others. Challenging the absurdity of the black-white national conversation about the American dream, Cepeda offers a working and accessible revision to suit generations of Americans, like her, who have been pushed to the margins. This event is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Resource Center, the Popel Shaw Center for Ethnicity and Race, the Division of Student Life, and the departments of Spanish & Portuguese, English and women’s, gender & sexuality studies.
