Latinos: The Not so New Kids on the Block
Juan David Coronado, Central Connecticut State University
Wednesday, June 9 at 2 p.m.
Often over simplified, American history has often ignored the rich and diverse ethnic enclaves that have made significant contributions to the making of the U.S. The Latino experience has often gone unnoticed and often Latinos have been treated as a permanent immigrant group. This talk will place Latinos in proper historical context and relate their importance to the U.S.
