Slam Poet Vanessa Hidary on the Complexity of Jewish Identity

University of San Francisco

September 17, | 6:30 - 8:00 pm | Fromm Hall | Maraschi Room



Growing up in the cultural diversity of New York City, artist Vanessa Hidary's experiences as a Sephardic Jew with close friends from different ethnic and religious backgrounds inspired her to write a number of acclaimed poems and stories, and create powerful shows, including the nationally toured "Culture Bandit." She has also had multiple appearances on Russell Simmons' "Def Poetry Jam" on HBO, was featured in the award winning film "The Tribe,"" and recently directed "Kaleidoscope," an ebbing of monologues featuring Jews of racial and ethnic diversity.
