Season 1, Episode 2
Please join me Enrique Morones and tune in to our latest episode of our new podcast, “Buen Hombre -Magnificent Mujer”, where I will be interviewing Josefina López a Chicana playwright, perhaps best known as the author of the play (and co-author of the screenplay) Real Women Have Curves. López is also the Founding Artistic Director of the CASA 0101 theater located in Boyle Heights, CA, which began in 2000.
What many people may not know is Josefina is a dear friend, long time activist and now is embarking on a new life path that combines all of her talents for the healing of individuals and the planet.
Josefina’s spirit is firey, courageous, generous and she is the quintessential trailblazer for women and Chicana Artivists, and all of us with something to say, that needs to be heard around the globe. It is our hope at Buen Hombre Magnificent Mujer that her message touches your heart as it has ours. Please share our new podcast with your friends and family. BuenHombre.org and MagnificentMujer.org
