IRMA HERRERA: WHY WOULD I MISPRONOUNCE MY OWN NAME?
What's in a name? A minefield of misplaced notions, comical, sad and sometimes demeaning. Hearing Irma Herrera give her name it's correct Spanish pronunciation leads people to make all sorts of assumptions about her.
Irma's observations from the front lines, notes from American history and laugh out loud humor allow us to reflect on what it will take for all of us to get along.
"WHY WOULD I MISPRONOUNCE MY OWN NAME?" sheds light and throws shade on all our prejudices.
"Speaks volumes about the ingrained power structures in American society."
