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.
