¿Cómo nos llamamos? = What do we call ourselves?

September 16, 2021

Led by Dr. David C. Rubi, professor of Spanish at PVCC, this event will explore how this particular ethnic group --and thus really any ethnic group-- is labeled and identified.  In studying this phenomenon, we can be more aware of how we are labeled and have more participation in this process.
