Augusta University will host the final screening in the Latino Americans: 500 Years of History series on Tuesday, March 15, from 6-8 p.m. in University Hall, Room 170.
Titled “The New Latinos,” the hour-long film is the fourth episode of the six-part Latino Americans series produced by WETA Washington, D.C.; Bosch and Co.; and Latino Public Broadcasting.
“The New Latinos” highlights the influx of immigration from Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic following World War II and stretching into the early 1960s. The episode focuses on the efforts of immigrants to find economic opportunities in their new homeland.
The final screening will feature a discussion led by Dr. Heather Abdelnur, associate professor of history.
This event is free, bilingual and open to the public.
