Description:

 

2044: The year the United States of America is projected to become a "minority" majority nation. Birth rates of people of color already exceed those of Caucasians.

 

What many don't know, is that Latinxs alone will make up roughly a third of America's population in a number of decades.

 

Immigration from Central and South America has changed everything. We are witnessing the rise of "the Latinx Giant."

 

Join spoken word artist David A. Romero as he asks the important questions: what has caused the great migrations from Latin America? How do immigrants and first-generation Latinxs simultaneously embrace and reject previous trends towards assimilation and integration? How has "the Latinx Giant" already affected the outcome of the national elections? Perhaps most importantly, who in America recognizes this shift, and how are they responding: for better, or worse?

 

This presentation will include multimedia and performances of spoken word poetry.


Purpose:

 

This presentation provides a brief summary of Latinx history in the United States. It also provides context for understanding the differences between the terms Latinx, Chicanx, and Hispanic. It is a celebration of Latinx culture through ongoing struggles with racism, victories won in civil rights and economic opportunities, and a preview of what is to come.

 

CATEGORIES: LATINX HISTORY, CHICANX HISTORY, HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH, POLITICS, CURRENT ISSUES, MULTIMEDIA, PERFORMANCE
