Join the Latino Cultural Center and the National Public Housing Museum in a panel discussion about the meanings, misperceptions, and implications of the ethnic labels Hispanic and Latino. We will watch a short documentary about these identity labels and follow with a discussion to explore questions such as:

  • What significance do these labels have for individuals and communities who fall under umbrella terms such as Hispanic or Latino?
  • How do these labels affect the meaning of citizenship and the struggle for social and cultural inclusion in the U.S.?

Panelists:

  • Atanacio “Nacho” Gonzales, Community Development Consultant
  • Jennifer Juarez, Latin American Recruitment and Educational Services (LARES)
  • Mario Lucero, Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS) graduate student
  • Moises Villada, Gender and Sexuality Center
  • Rosa Cabrera, Latino Cultural Center

Moderator:

  • Lorena Garcia, Sociology

This event is part of the National Public Housing Museum’s “Profiles in Color: Race, Place & Identity” series.
