Author and activist to speak
LAWRENCE — A White Fund lecture featuring award-winning author and cultural activist Raquel Cepeda will be held on March 6 from 8:45 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Lawrence High School, 70-72 North Parish Road.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
During the event, titled “Debunking and Redefining the ‘American Dream’ in Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina,” Cepeda will discuss her coming of age in New York City and Santo Domingo as well as the process of uncovering and exploring her ancestry and what it means to be Latino today.
Cepeda, an award winning journalist, cultural activist, and documentary filmmaker, directed and produced “Bling: A Planet Rock,” a critically acclaimed documentary about American hip-hop culture’s obsession with diamonds and is currently in production on “Deconstructing Latina,” a documentary about a group of troubled teenage girls in a suicide prevention program who are transformed through an exploration of their roots using ancestral DNA testing.
