A Bigger Bite of the Apple: History, Culture, and the Latinx Experience in Washington State

October 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

- Free
FREE VIRTUAL LECTURE IN CELEBRATION OF HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

The Chicano and Latino community in Washington State is easily traced to the 19th century. However, permanent viable communities began to emerge in the 1920-1930s. Since that period, not only has this population grown dramatically, but has made distinct contributions to the development of Washington. This presentation will trace the history of this community from the early twentieth century to present. We will explore the history, culture, and contributions of the largest underrepresented group in the state of Washington.

DR. JERRY GARCIA received his Ph.D. in history from Washington State University. His research focus is on Chicana/o History, Latin American and Mexican History, Asians in the Americas, immigration, empire, masculinity, and race in the Americas. He currently oversees the Sea Mar Chicana/o and Latina/o Cultural and History Museum, as well as promotes and advocates for educational opportunities for our Chicanx and Latinx community, through such programs as the Latina/o 教育al Achievement Project (LEAP).
