Lights, camera, action! 🌟 We loved seeing Barnard Journalist-in-Residence Maria Hinojosa ’84 in the new film “In the Heights,” an award-winning stage musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda turned movie that follows characters living in a tight-knit community in the neighborhood of Washington Heights. Hinojosa plays Juana the Organizer at a rally for Dreamers. In her own life, Hinojosa, an activist and award-winning journalist, has been a vital voice for the immigrant community. Her tireless advocacy is an inspiration to all of us at Barnard.
Proud of playing Juana the Organizer @intheheightsmovie via @quiaraalegria Quiara added this important story line about lifting up the voices of our undocumented brothers and sisters. I am honored to be a part of this film 🎥🙏🏽♥️💜❤️
