Somos Latinas: Voices of Wisconsin Latina Activists Book Launch at Mitchell Street

Tuesday, June 05, 2018 - 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Categories: Author/Storyteller

Join co-editors Dr. Andrea-Teresa Arenas and Eloisa Gómez  for the book launch of  Somos Latinas: Voices of Wisconsin Latina Activists.Celebrated Latina civil rights activist Dolores Huerta once said, "Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person a potential activist, every minute a chance to change the world." These are the stories of some of the Latina activists from Wisconsin who have lived Huerta's words. Somos Latinas shares the powerful narratives of 25 activists--from outspoken demonstrators to collaborative community-builders to determined individuals working for change behind the scenes--providing proof of the long-standing legacy of Latina activism throughout Wisconsin. Somos Latinas draws on activist interviews conducted as part of the Somos Latinas Digital History Project, housed at the Wisconsin Historical Society, and looks deep into the life and passion of each woman. Co-sponsored by Wisconsin Historical Society Press and Boswell Books. Books will be available for purchase.
