A Night with Poet and Writer Elizabeth Acevedo

Elizabeth Acevedo is a well-renowned Slam Poet who identifies as a Dominican Afro-Latinx woman. She will recite original poetry pertinent to latinx culture and her intersectional experiences with race, culture, gender and sexuality.

Through her writing Acevedo aims to push back against popular narratives that often leave people of color and their stories out of the picture. "People, women, communities like mine, exist, and are entirely necessary to be written about... If we don’t, we’re always going to be someone else’s to write, and someone else’s projection of what our bodies are."
