They Call Me Q

Northeastern Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

They Call Me Q is the story of a girl from Bombay growing up in the Boogie Down Bronx who gracefully seeks balance between the cultural pressures brought forth by her traditional parents and wanting acceptance into her new culture. Along the journey, Qurrat Ann Kadwani transforms into 13 characters that have shaped her life including her parents, Caucasian teachers, Puerto Rican classmates, and African-American friends. Laden with heart and abundant humor, They Call Me Q speaks to the universal search for identity experienced by immigrants of all nationalities.
