Today’s audio pick is a terrific interview with author Cherríe Moraga on Latino USA. The topic is her feminist anthology, “This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color,” which she co-created with author Gloria Anzaldua in 1981. This is a book I haven’t read yet, but am adding to my “must read” list based on this interview. The book was recently re-released, so I’m probably not the only person who’s going to be introduced to this book this year.
Wikipedia describes Moraga as “a Chicana writer, feminist activist, poet, essayist, and playwright. She is part of the faculty at Stanford University in the Department of Drama and Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity. Her works explore the ways in which gender, sexuality and race intersect in the lives of women of color.”  She’s definitely someone to know.
