Mujeres at the Mic!:
A Reading by Nuyorican Women Writers. (Peggy Robles-Alvarado,  Maria Rodriguez- Morales,  Nancy Mercado,  Vanessa chica Ferreira)
What is a Nuyorican? Are any of them women? This reading discusses what it means to be a woman in the Nuyorican literary movement and poetry performance scene from Loisaida, El Barrio, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and beyond by featuring the work of four prominent, intergenerational New York City-based poets at different stages of their careers.
With their defiant and oftentimes nostalgic expressions in English, Spanish, and Spanglish, these mujeres have secured their spot in Nuyorican history.
