Description

The very diversity that America was founded on now seems to be turning on itself. Instead of seeing our individual differences as a source of national strength, we're dispatching them as daggers in our American identity. America is steadily splitting along political, gender, color and cultural lines, battling it out over controversial issues like racism, immigration, terrorism, and even patriotism and American pride. What is the verdict for a country of citizens who don blinders and boxing gloves in the face of opposing points of view? What type of "American Identity" will we leave for the next generation? In Red, White, and Latina 3-time Emmy Award winner, 2-time author, entertainment personality, and proud American Latina, Cristina Perez dissects these issues and proposes a new unified outlook for America based on common sense, common values, and common ground. She delivers a no-holds-barred and non-biased look inside the most heated conversations in America today, examining the headlines, evidence, and hearsay, before delivering her verdict for each one.

Cristina Perez is a powerful, unifying and trustworthy voice in the entertainment industry and community. Cristina is the three-time Emmy Award-winning television Judge on "Cristina's Court" (FOX) and Emmy-nominated "Justice For All With Judge Cristina Perez" (Entertainment Studios). She also is internationally renowned as the Judge on the second highest rated daytime Spanish language program in the U.S. "La Corte de Familia" (NBC/Telemundo). Cristina hosted "Judge Cristina Live @ 9" on KABC 790 AM (Los Angeles). According to a Syndicated Network Television Association survey, Cristina ranked as one of the most trustworthy and influential syndicated hosts on television, ranking second behind Oprah Winfrey among adults 18 to 34 years old. As the first television judge ever to cross over from Spanish to English speaking television, Cristina has been inspiring fans of her courtroom television shows, radio shows, and books for over 15 years with her common sense and candid approach to help solve many of life's issues. Her message of finding strength in one's unique identity sets her apart from others. She has the ability to speak and create authentic connections with individuals from all and walks of life. Cristina, the daughter of Colombian immigrants, and is uniquely able to blend her American pride, with a love for her heritage, without bias or a political agenda to deliver each inspiring message she delivers. She watched her parents struggle with racism, finances, and adapting to the U.S. culture with a foreign language. She learned to speak English around the age of 10 and mastered both languages. She credits her family's guidance and desire to remain close to their heritage and culture for her personal and professional achievements. Cristina crosses the cultural, language, generational, and political divide, speaking the language of common sense, common values, and common ground. Cristina brings a fresh and rare way of connecting with people. She is the ultimate crossover host, who while being a hip, professional, multicultural woman, always seeks to introduce traditional values into the lives of all. Consequently, she appeals to young, millennial and older audiences across the globe. In contrast to her at-times tough on-air persona, Cristina never wears "rubber gloves." Cristina is also the author of Living By Los Dichos (Simon & Schuster/Atria) and It's All About the Woman Who Wears It: Ten Laws for Being Smart, Successful and Sexy Too (Penguin Books), with a third book Red White and Latina: Our American Identity set to hit the shelves in April of 2017 (Morgan James).
