On A Personal Note

Hi, this is Rebecca. 

         I look forward to hearing from you regarding requests for speaking engagements or workshops. I have some great programs for Hispanic heritage and African American heritage months that are flexible and can also be used for other events such as Women’s History month, or for topics regarding race relations, coming of age, the Harlem Renaissance, or life during the Jim Crow or World War II era. My goal is to highlight voices from minority communities to demonstrate that we share much more in common than we realize. 

As for the oral history or memoir workshops: My workshops are lively, engaging and filled with hands-on activities. I provide readings, workbooks, and writing prompts depending upon the workshop and they can be tailored to your group’s need.

If you are interested in participating as a narrator in the Treasures from Aztlan oral history project, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m still gathering oral histories for this project.

Thank you for visiting my site and I look forward to hearing from you soon! 

Rebecca
