Latino Pioneers gallery reception
This project is a tribute to the unheard voices of the Hispanic community that with “mucho sudor - a lot of sweat” paved the way for the next generations. This exhibition is part of a larger project that consists of a series of documentaries and a magazine, featuring the stories of eight pioneers and their migration journeys.
These stories are guided by Miren Uriarte, a Boston-based sociologist whose teaching and research focuses on different aspects of the intersection of race, ethnicity and social policy. The goal of this project is to celebrate the contributions made by these leaders. The project was written and produced by Blanca Bonilla, with graphic design and photos by Lisa Link, and editing, in part, by Margaret Blood, Casandra Arevalo, and Colleen Locke.
A reception will be held on Thursday, September 23 at 11 a.m. on City Hall plaza. It is free to the public.
