Women, Art, and Activism

Bellarmine Forum 2010 HeaderLast night I saw three generations of the Partnoy family present their creative works at LMU. Matriarch Raquel showed slides of her paintings and talked about what it was like to have a daughter “disappear” in Argentina. Poet Alicia had one of her daughters, a LMU senior, enact a story about her time in an Argentine “concentration camp.” Then another daughter, Ruth Irupe Sanabria, read some very intense poems, including one about the uncle who committed suicide during that reign of terror. The Bellarmine Forum is presenting some remarkable women all week. I’m moderating a panel on hip-hop Friday at 1.
