KIMBERLEE: May 14, 1994. The end of my first year in grad school. It came to me on email. Stunned, saddened, supposed to be working on a paper.
DUSTY: Anzaldúa is dead.
KIMBERLEE: Instead I build an altar. Piles of her books lay open, marked pages, light candles, burn sage. I offer her tequila, take a swig and replace the bottle. Throughout the night I cry.
DUSTY: Monday, October 12th, 1998. I’m in art school. I stand before an audience at a performance showcase. “To whoever will show up. It’s 2:29 A.M., October 11th and I am sitting here thinking, crying about the fact that I am supposed to perform for you tomorrow. I have been working on a short piece for the event, however, in the course of the last few days it no longer feels appropriate.”
KIMBERLEE: A boy in Wyoming, was beaten, and tied to a fence.
