Florida Talks- 2021 Fall Speaker Series presents Treasures from the Aztlan: Hispanic Women’s Voices by Rebecca Dominguez-Karimi
Discover a different point-of-view from Hispanic women as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. In 2005, Dr. Dominguez-Karimi created an oral history collection titled Treasures From Aztlan. She gathered stories from Mexican Americans who lived during the Jim Crow era. These stories gave the individuals represented in the collection a voice to tell their harrowing accounts of survival from racist laws and practices in our culture. Many of those featured in this project have passed away, but the record of their story lives on to honor the struggles and triumphs of Hispanic people.
Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. Free to public. Please RSVP.
Date/time: September 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Presented By:Dr. Rebecca Dominguez-Karimi, historian
