Beatriz Manz, professor of Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley and author of Paradise in Ashes: A Guatemalan Journey of Courage, Terror, and Hope, was honored with an invitation to the inauguration of Chilean President Michelle Bachelet.
In addition to rubbing elbows with Chile’s elite, she met Vice President Joe Biden. Manz told us they shared this exchange:
I said, “I am Beatriz Manz from Berkeley.”
Biden said “Oh, you must be a radical”
I responded: “Of course I am a radical!”
We love it!
