Hearing Dr. Jose B. Gonzalez speak was one of the highlights of the conference. His insights about Latino literature, achievements, Latino pride, and motivational words were inspiring. Here is a clip of a poem he recited:
Dr. Jose B. Gonzalez is a Professor of English and Latino Studies at the United States Coast Guard Academy. The presentation he gave at the conference was entitled, "What is Latino Literature and Why it Matters."
At dinner, everyone was excited to join the Harvard mariachi band in singing, "El Rey."
