About interview!

Born in Jaltipán, Veracruz, Mexico, Lucha Corpi has become known as a pillar of Chicano literature in the United States. She is a pioneer of the noir and mystery novel, and her work often documents the experiences of various members of the Chicano community living in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area during the 1970s and 1980.
Corpi holds a BA in Comparative Literature from UC, Berkeley and a master’s degree in comparative literature from SFSU. She is the author of two poetry collections, two bilingual children’s books, six novels, and a book of personal essays and family stories. One of her most important contributions to Chicano literature is a series of four poems called “Los poemas de Marina.”
Among her awards and fellowships are the National Endowment for the Arts, Oakland Cultural Arts, PEN-Oakland, and International Latino Books Awards. Lucha Corpi is a founding member of Aztlán Cultural and Centro Chicano de Escritores, the Oakland Museum and the Latin American Commission.

Indómitas is a live podcast series hosted by Chelis López of KPOO and Radio Bilingüe, featuring interviews with fierce women artists and activists

Each month in Brava’s Cabaret,* Indómitas will interview female singers, writers, poets, activists, artists, journalists, filmmakers, and others – some well-known and some deserving to be – for live broadcast. These 60-minute conversations will cover the women’s stories of achievement, pitfalls, and hopes for their futures.

Be ready for open and honest conversations, where intimacy fosters the sharing of joy, fear, acceptance, and ultimately, the strength of women. It’s our time to be the ones who narrate our stories of who we are, what we do, what matters to us and how we organized and stand up for our rights.

*Indómitas has moved to online-only format until further notice.
