The PBS documentary series Latino Americans: The 500 Year Legacy That Reshaped a Nation chronicles the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos in the U.S. The Library screens the episode Empire of Dreams, covering the period from 1880-1942, when the influx of newly immigrated Cubans, Mexicans, and Puerto Ricans began arriving and building strong Latino-American communities in our country.
A discussion afterward is led by two University of Kansas scholars: Ruben Flores, an associate professor of American studies associate director of the school’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and Christina Bejarano, an associate professor of political science and faculty member in university’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.
