Cherrie Moraga was born in 1952 in California to a Mexican mother and an English father. She was one of the few white girls in a community of Mexicans. As a child, she had an internal struggle to connect to her roots. Since she was lighter skinned, she was able to pass as white, and often received grief from her extended family as a result. She therefore was introduced to the idea of white privilege, as she had it better than many of her extended family. As a result of this, she was inspired to learn from this hardship, and from that came her prominent themes of family and heritage.
