Throughout the month of March, Miami Dade College (MDC) will present dozens of exciting, informative and fun events in honor of Women’s History Month. The events are free and open to the community (unless otherwise noted), and will take place at MDC campuses and outreach centers.
Women’s History Month at MDC highlights trailblazing women who, through their strength and dedication, have helped redefine what it means to be a leader in America today. MDC recognizes women who have not only made an impact in their respective industries, but who have steadily kept the wheels of progress turning for future generations. From fashion to politics, they have led the way in moving women up the corporate ladder, building a stronger, more diverse workforce.
Join us as we celebrate and pay tribute to the greatness of all women through dozens of presentations, films, discussions, displays and performances. To view a complete list of Women’s History Months events at MDC, visit http://www.bluetoad.com/publication?i=387864
Coffee with the Author, Sandra Castillo
Join Sandra M. Castillo, author, scholar and professor, who will discuss her book Eating Moors and Christians, a delicious concoction of imagery and history. A work of luminous poems of her life in post-revolutionary Cuba, of exile in Miami and her journey back, each time unearthing powerful new memories and voices that become part of this great ajiaco of magic, glorious food and unforgettable people. The book is a demonstration of leadership in action, her lived experience as a creative process and a necessary read here, there and everywhere.
