Cristogianni Borsella is a 25-year-old native of Long Island, New York. He is involved in various multicultural organizations and is deeply committed to anti-racist causes.
Currently, Cristo is a student at SUNY Empire State College and is pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Historical Studies. In addition to writing poetry and short stories, Cristo also writes academic nonfiction. His first book, soon to be published by Dante University Press, is an academic work entitled The Italian Americans: A History on Their Persecution, Identity and Activism from the Late 19th Century to Today.
Cristo was recently interviewed by PRIMO (the premiere Italo-American periodical) for his socially conscious poetry. His highest hope is that his writings will positively affect the troubled world around him.
