“Black Latinos & the Civil Rights Movement”
For over 30 years, Sonia Manzano has inspired, educated, and delighted children and families as "Maria" on Sesame Street. Breaking ground as one of the first Hispanic characters on national television, she continues to contribute to enriching diversity on television, on the stage, and in the educational realm. As a Hispanic actress and activist, she has been honored by many organizations, including the Association of Hispanic Arts, The Congressional Hispanic Caucus in Washington DC, The National Hispanic Media Coalition, The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families, and the Hispanic Heritage Award for Education. In 2013, she was named among the “25 greatest Latino role models ever” by Latina Magazine. A staunch advocate for education, Manzano shares her extraordinary talent to help students to succeed. Whether speaking out for literacy, diversity, or addressing the issues we face in our media saturated life, she is a familiar, engaging voice that brings new light to her roles and to our lives.
In collaboration with the Black Cultural Center (BCC)

Facilitator: Dr. Aurelio Curbelo, LCC Director
Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but soft-spoken, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual's ability to change the world. Discussion to follow film.

Cristóbal Salinas Jr. will dialogue about those conversations that one can first have in an environment of engulfed private and public spaces. The presenter takes the conversation to a private space, and brings those experiences to this public space, in order to question the traditional understanding of social identities (Race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, masculinity, etc), and challenge these understandings in order to makes space for a more intersectional approach to the identity development of Latino/a students.
Cristóbal Salinas Jr., doctoral candidate in higher education at Iowa State University.
