As we continue to build a culturally connected alumni community in Los Angeles County, the University of Chicago Latino Alumni Network Committee invites you to its first event of 2016.

Join us on Thursday, February 25th at La Plaza de Cultura y Artes (501 N. Main St. Los Angeles, CA 90012) for a film screening of Black Grandma in the Closet (54 min), followed by a Q&A session led by Dr. Toni C. Humber, professor of Ethnic and Women’s Studies at Cal Poly Pomona, and scholar of the African diaspora.

In the film, Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. explores the almost unknown history of black Mexico and Peru, two countries whose significant Afro-Latino populations mind the margins of official history.

This event is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The screening begins promptly at 7 pm on the 4th floor boardroom, room 405. Before the screening, please feel free to join us for light refreshments and wine in room 406.
