Meet the Authors: Angela L. Willis and Rafael Ocasio, The Dissidence of Reinaldo Arenas

Meet Angela L. Willis and Rafael Ocasio, coauthors (with Sandro R. Barros) of The Dissidence of Reinaldo Arenas. Their book demonstrates Reinaldo Arenas’s influence as public pedagogue, mentor, and social activist whose teaching on resistance to normative ideologies resonates in societies past, present, and future. This book presents the Cuban writer’s poetry, novels, and plays as a curriculum of dissidence that provides models for socially engaged intellectual activism.
