A new movie from Europe offers fresh perspective on a subject that often grabs headlines here in Eugene. It also brings to light some of the best historical footage of Oregon’s most legendary runner.
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.
This event is free and open to the public. Accommodations for people with disabilities will be provided if requested in advance by calling 541-346-3056, or email email@example.com.
