2013 Graduate School Public Lectures: Raquel Z. Rivera
Kane Hall 120, UW Seattle

Raquel Rivera

Where does artistic practice and spiritual belief intersect with grassroots activism? This question will be at the heart of Raquel Z. Rivera’s discussion on art and spirituality, The Liberation Mythologies: Quests for Roots, Spirit and Justice in Afro-Puerto Rican, Afro-Dominican, and Mexica Music and Dance.

Dr. Rivera will look at myth-making through the prisms of eclectic North American communities. She will examine how groups try to explain the unexplainable, from Afro-Puerto Rican bomba dancers in New York to communities of New Mexico-based concheros and Mexica dancers. Rivera will connect the traditions these groups honor while exploring how they build a better future.

Dr. Raquel Z. Rivera is an author, scholar, and singer-songwriter. Learn more about Dr. Rivera.
