PULPO's 1st Annual Language, Life, and Love:
An Anthology of Latinx Stories
Friday, April 29, 6-8PM
Campus Club Dining Room
"LLL" is a Latinx monologues series that will be showcasing the diverse narratives of the Latinx community on campus, highlighting the often-overlooked intersectionalities of identities within our community. This event is looking for monologues, dances, singing, and other forms of art produced by Latinx Princetonians. Before the event takes place we want to create a collage of photos that highlight what it means to be Latinx, and present the final piece at the performance. Afterward, we will host a discussion in which members of Princeton University can talk to performers in a more intimate setting.
