Latino Cultural Center to showcase culture during heritage month
Purdue's Latino Cultural Center is celebrating the annual Latino Heritage Month from Sept. 11 through Oct. 9 with numerous events focusing on the history and contributions of the Latino culture in the United States.
"The Latino Cultural Center has celebrated the Latino Heritage Month since its inception in fall 2003," said Maricela Alvarado, director of the Latino Cultural Center. "Every year during this month we explore different aspects of the Latino culture, such as the Asian-Latino, Jewish-Latino and Afro-Latino identities and history. Exploring these identities provides a greater understanding of how being Latino is not about race but about experiences, languages and culture."
This year's Latino Heritage Month celebration begins Friday with an open house at the center. More
