Arriba mi gente

/// Gloria Anzaldúa was a prominent and much respected writer in Mexican American, Latino, and feminist studies. Her work has empowered and inspired many Mexican Americans in the U.S and Chicano literature. Her concept of “El Mundo Zurdo”, the left hand world, is a process toward justice through advocacy. It focuses on bettering ourselves in order to improve society. In her work, she reflects upon her own experiences of cultural and social marginalization in her life on the border. Most of her contributions lay in her writing which espoused societal healing through the acceptance and celebration of diverse linguistic, and cultural traditions. I created this screenprint as a tribute to her innovative, spiritual, and progressive contributors to our society. /// “Si cambiamos nosotros mismos, cambiamos al mundo, que viajar por el camino de El Mundo Zurdo es el camino de un movimiento bidireccional-una manera de profundizar en el mundo, una recreación simultánea de uno mismo y una reconstrucción de la sociedad.” – cita Gloria Anzaldúa (traducido al español por Nancy Guevara) /// “By changing ourselves we can change the world, that traveling El Mundo Zurdo (the left hand world) path is the path of a two-way movement– a going deep into the world, a simultaneous recreation of the self and a reconstruction of society. -Gloria Anzaldua
