Diane Guerrero, Brown Distinguished Lecture
November 8, 2017 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM | Location: Jackson Auditorium
Diane Guerrero is a Boston native and has, from an early age, had an affinity for the arts. She attended the Boston Arts Academy where she studied vocal music and after graduating high school, she received a degree in political science and communication. However, she quickly realized her passion lay in performance art and moved to New York to pursue her dreams. She has subsequently appeared on numerous television series and is best known for her roles as Maritza Ramos on the award-winning, Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated Netflix series "Orange Is The New Black" (for which she received two Screen Actors Guild awards) and as Lina in CW's breakout hit, "Jane The Virgin."
Guerrero will play opposite Catherine Zeta Jones, Olivier Martinez, and John Leguizamo in her upcoming film, "The Godmother." She recently wrapped lead roles in "Peter And John," "Happy Yummy Chicken" and has appeared in several other features including Lionsgate’s "My Man Is A Loser."
Variety recently named her one of the "Top 10 Latina Actresses" to watch. In 2015, Guerrero was named a White House Ambassador for Citizenship and Naturalization. She is an outspoken advocate for commonsense, comprehensive immigration reform, and has worked with Immigrant Legal Resource Center and Mi Familia Vota, a nonpartisan Latino civic engagement organization to promote citizenship and voter registration. Her memoir, "In The Country We Love," is in bookstores now. Guerrero currently resides in New York City.
This event is free and open to the public.
