CSUMB hosts screening of 'Latino Americans' in Salinas
"Latino Americans: 500 Years of History," a six-part documentary, was created for the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in 2013. CSUMB has been screening the films thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association. On Feb. 9, another installment in the series will be shown at the Cesar Chavez Library in Salinas. “Peril and Promise” covers the past 30 years, with a second wave of Cubans and Central Americans coming north. A poetry reading by Professor Diana Garcia will accompany the screening.
