Conference on Latino Los Angeles


Dear colleagues and friends:
You are invited to a conference on “Latino Los Angeles,” to take place on Saturday, April 21st at The Autry National Center of the American West. Organized by the Historical Society of Southern California (HSSC), this interdisciplinary conference looks at how Latinos are shaping and restructuring three main themes in Los Angeles: community, the arts, and education. What major challenges face Latino communities today? How do artists address key issues and themes among Angelenos? How effective are educational institutions in meeting the needs and concerns of the Latino community? Scholars, filmmakers, journalists, and artists will address the contemporary Latino experience in Los Angeles and the Inland Empire, and film clips and music form part of the program. Tickets, which include continental breakfast, a boxed lunch, and refreshments, are $50 for members of the HSSC and the Autry, $65 for non-members, and $25 for students. To RSVP, email, call (323) 460 5632, or visit
