My LatinX Is — An Open Mic

 

What does Latinx identity mean in today’s melting pot culture of assimilation and appropriation?

Join UMS, The UM Libraries, Trotter Multicultural Center, MESA, UM Latina/o Studies and La Casa as they set out to explore the variety of identities and experiences that live under the umbrella of Latinx in this free open mic event featuring live music, poetry, dance and more. My Latinx Is… will be hosted by Christina “LadyFire Tide” Perez and features a guest performance by Omar Aragonés. Event will be followed by a discussion on the ways in which pop culture forces Latinx entertainers to either perform or avoid their Latinidad led by UM Professor Silvia Pedraza. Admission is free and open to the public.
