This week on From the Vault, we celebrate Chicana writer and one of the early voices of the Third Wave of Feminism, Cherrie Moraga, whose first solo authored work, Loving in the War Years, is considered one of the most influential works in Chicano Literature. First, we present an early 1983 recording of Moraga reading from Loving in the War Years, made by noted KPFA Women’s Department producer Cindy Madron. We follow that with a 2010 interview conducted by From the Vault producer Mark Torres; Moraga promotes her play Digging Up the Dirt, about coming to terms with the murders of two women in her life.
