Leading feminist Chicana essayist, playwright, poet, editor, and teacher, Cherr?e Moraga delivered the fifth annual Horowitz lecture. With about 400 in attendance, Moraga discussed her work as a playwright and author, read some selections from her work, and answered questions from the audience.

Moraga's widely-produced plays include Giving Up the Ghost (1986), Shadow of a Man (1992), Heroes and Saints and Other Plays (1994), and Watsonville: Some Place Not Here (winner of the 1995 Fund for New American Plays Award). Her pioneering anthology This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color (1985), edited with Gloria Anzald?a, won the Before Columbus American Book Award.

The Horowitz Lecture was funded this year from the Sosland Foundation and the Horowitz Lecture Fund at KU Endowment.
