A Conversation with Jennine Capo Crucet

  • Wednesday, February 8, 2017 • 6:00 pm
  • College Hall, South 40

JCC is a Cuban-American woman that grew up in a working class neighborhood in Miami. She began as a first generation college student and child of immigrants. Currently, she teaches English and Ethnic Studies at the University of Nebraska. Some of her written works include “How to Leave Hialeah” and “Make Your Home Among Strangers.”

This event will include time dedicated to getting to know her story, an onstage interview, and for the audience to share their stories or ask questions. Some topics that will be addressed are:
1. her experience as a first generation student, child of immigrants, and her Latinx identity
2. her inspiration for her books
3. how to best support first generation students

We are so excited, and can’t wait to see you there!
