Latino Americans, 500 Years of History: Exploring the Latino Experience in Tacoma Panel Discussion
Hosted by the Collins Memorial Library, “Exploring the Latino Experience in Tacoma: A Panel Discussion,” was held in the Rasmussen Rotunda at Wheelock Student Center on Thursday, February 18th, 2016 from 6:00PM – 8:00PM. The event featured a student-led panel discussion between members of Puget Sound’s Latinos Unidos student group and individuals affiliated with Centro Latino, a local organization that supports the Latino community in Tacoma. The discussion was preceded by a reception for our campus and community guests, and accompanied by a free form canvas from a local Latina artist. The panel was developed through a partnership between the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma Art Museum, and Centro Latino in support of Latino Americans: 500 Years of History, a nationwide public programming initiative from the American Library Association (ALA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Affiliated programming seeks to engage people in examining and documenting the histories of Latino Americans in their communities and facilitate informed discussion about Latino history and culture.
