Episode Six  - “Peril and Promise”
Monday, April 25 | 6 pm | Sinclair Auditorium
This episode beings in the 1980s with the sudden arrival of hundreds of thousands of Central Americans fleeing death squads and mass murders at home. By the early 1990s, a political debate over illegal immigration has begun. But change is on the way—the coalescence of a new phenomenon called Latino American culture, as Latinos spread geographically and make their mark in music, sports, politics, business, and education. Is a new world being created? 
Discussion following each film screening by a faculty member of the Latin American Studies Program.
