The 2011 Corinthian Hall Lecture Features Nuestra Herencia Americana

p>On Wednesday, September 14, 2011, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St., this year's Corinthian Hall Lecture features Daniel Serda, who will share his findings on immigration, discrimination, and preservation of Hispanic culture in a talk titled Nuestra Herencia Americana (Our American Heritage).

Following Serda's presentation, Gene Chavez discusses the social and political dynamics that shape how majority and minority communities co-exist and thrive.

The Corinthian Hall Lecture annually explores themes of community and diversity in Kansas City history. The 2011 lecture specifically addresses minority heritage and a museum's mission, capacity, and duty in this arena.

Co-sponsored by the Kansas City Museum at Corinthian Hall.

Admission is free. A 6 p.m. reception precedes the presentation. RSVP online or call 816.701.3407.
