Harvard Conference (February 5-7, 2010)

Cuentos & Cultura: Increasing Access to Culturally Relevant Literature and Arts

On behalf of ECCSF, Harvard-Radcliff RAZA cordially invites you to the Winter 2010 East Coast Chicano Student Forum to be held February 5-7, 2010 at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA.

This year, we are very excited to expand the scope of our event to connect and empower our community through a discussion about access to culturally-relevant literature and arts. The conference will focus on efforts to increase access to literature and the arts, the need to acknowledge Latino literature and arts in mainstream American education, and instilling cultural pride in our children while educating our community. In the following weeks we will provide you with more information about our discussion panels, workshops, and keynote speaker.

La Union Hace La Fuerza,
Maricruz Rodriguez

Check out the organization information, and the amazing visual and written art of past East Coast Chicano students. I hope I can continue the legacy of this insightful and informative blog!
