Everyone is invited to attend “They Call Me Q,” an emotionally charged comedy, on Tues., March 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Boardroom, Room 223. The free performance is sponsored by the Center for Diversity and Integrated Learning, the Student Government Association and President’s Diversity Advisory Council.
“They Call Me Q” is the story of a girl from Bombay, India, growing up in the Boogie Down Bronx who gracefully seeks balance between the cultural pressures brought forth by her traditional parents while wanting acceptance into her new culture. Along the journey, Qurrat Ann Kadwani (Q) transforms into 13 characters that have shaped her life including her parents, Caucasian teachers, Puerto Rican classmates and African-American friends.
Laden with heart and abundant humor, “They Call Me Q” speaks to the universal search for identity experienced by immigrants of all nationalities. The performance will be followed by a panel discussion led by SFCC students, attorney and director of the Santa Fe Dreamers project Allegra Love and Santa Fe Dreamers Project member Hector Aveldano, Assistant Director of Mathematics Jaime Hurtado and disability rights educator and activist Sebastian Margaret.
