“Elizabeth [Acevedo] was absolutely amazing, both on stage and off stage. She was exactly what we were looking for in our program and her talent wowed our students. We were very happy with the event.”

— Mark Carbonara, Dominican University

“Last night was absolutely incredible. We could not have asked for a better turnout and a better event overall. There were so many people in the audience that were able to relate to Elizabeth [Acevedo] on a deeper level and that’s what made the atmosphere so great. I haven’t heard anything but good feedback and I’ve had multiple requests to bring her back next year because she left such a good impression on everyone. There were even faculty members in the audience that are anticipating to show their classes videos of Elizabeth’s poems because they feel that the pieces would contribute significantly to their respective curricula.”

— Christina Franqui, Ithaca College

“She [Elizabeth Acevedo] was wonderful. It was a perfect fit for the event, the audience loved her! She gave them a space to explore some emotions they may have or need to understand from an outsider’s perspective or just a space to hear what she had to say abut her experiences, observations, etc. One of the students from the club we were collaborating with even said we need to bring her back in the future. She is one performer we will be keeping in our heads for future performances.”

— Emily Umstead, Aquinas College

“The event went really! We had good turnout for an event taking place the first week of classes, and Kyla [Lacey] was great! Students really enjoyed her, and I know our AALANA group is already talking about bringing her back another time. Thank you again (and to Kyla, too!) “

— Andrea Cronkrite, Finger Lakes Community College
