After the election of President Trump in 2016, she began writing about her own experience as well as those of other undocumented immigrants in New York, Miami, Cleveland, Michigan and Connecticut through a series of reported essays. Now a doctoral student at Yale, Villavicencio’s work insists on breaking conventional and sanitized narratives of immigrants in her book, which she calls a punk rock memoir.

People Get Ready: The Saga of the Black Panthers’ Band ‘The Lumpen’
We’re going back in time, to 1970, when the hard-charging song “Free Bobby Now” was recorded in Oakland. It was an anthem to Black Panther Party Leader Bobby Seale, who was locked up in a Connecticut jail at the time. The song was one of a handful recorded by the Party’s unofficial house band, The Lumpen. Their music was explosive, and so was their message. Their mission was to spread the seed of social revolution through the Trojan Horse of funk and soul. And they worked non-stop for the cause, playing packed concerts around California, New York, Philly, and the Midwest. Their militant agenda would put them up against the forces of prejudice and law and order with every downbeat.
