A native Brooklynite, Richard has assisted Columbia University and the New York City
Commission on Human Rights in field research throughout the NYC’s five boroughs. Prior to
this assignment, in preparation for his master thesis and fulfilling a long-life dream, Richard
traveled to Havana, Cuba and conducted research at the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art
and Industry (ICAIC). Under the advisement of Dr. Ying Zhu, he completed his thesis titled “At
the Margins of Society with Tomás Gutiérrez Alea: Race, Gender and Sexuality in Cuban
Cinema.” Richard hopes to return to Cuba (and Latin America in general) for future research.
