Featuring Alicia Diaz, J.D. Díaz is an instructor at the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies at Wayne State University, where she strives to facilitate de-colonized learning spaces in which Latinidad is central to the American story. A third-generation Detroiter, she is committed to the proposition that Latinx stories are Detroit stories. A first-time filmmaker, she is director and executive producer of “Dangerous Times: Rebellious Responses,” which traces the 1980s rise of the Sanctuary Movement in Detroit. The graduate of the WSU Law School also is a collector of 16th to 19th century manuscripts related to the enslavement and indentured servitude of peoples of African, Indigenous and Asian descent.
