4th Biennial Latino Roots Celebration
June 8, 2017
4 pm - 6 pm
Knight Library Browsing Room
Organized by the Center for Latina/o and Latin American Studies (CLLAS) and the UO Libraries, the biennial Latino Roots Celebration showcases a series of short video documentaries made by UO students. The Latino Roots course traces Latino and Latin American immigration, settlement, social movements, and civic and political integration in Oregon during the 20th and 21st centuries. As part of the course, students use oral histories to produce narratives capturing the experiences of individual Latinos and Latino families in Oregon. The students’ class projects will be placed among the holdings of the university’s Special Collections and University Archives for use by researchers in many different fields.
"Oregon's Latinx History," an exhibit of UO Libraries collection materials accompanies this event, May - June 2017.
