Celebrate Latinx Heritage Month 2020 by joining DUHLAA for a lifelong learning program. To better understand today, we must look back on our past journeys that brought us to the present. In this session, we will learn about the growth of the Latino/a community and the history of contemporary migration to the U.S. South. Please join Dr. Cecilia Marquez, Assistant Professor of History, as she shares her expertise on Latino/as during the demise of Jim Crow segregation, their transformation from an ethnic group to a racial one, and the importance of region in shaping Latino/a identity today. Recommended resources for this topic are available here.
