Re-imagining Migration and Words Without Borders invite you to join us on Wednesday, June 3rd at 5 pm.
We'll be reading "I Am Not Your Cholo," a personal essay from journalist Marco Avilés, who moved to the U.S. from Peru several years ago. In it, Avilés shares his personal history of growing up with brown skin in a racially divided country, the sense of recognition he felt while watching the James Baldwin documentary "I Am Not Your Negro," and his efforts to communicate his experiences to the U.S.-born, mostly white audiences he encounters in his new home of Maine.
