Latino Americans: 500 Years of History: Part 6: Peril and Promise (1980-2000)

Cristhian Espinoza-Pino, Lecturer IV in the Spanish Department at the UM Residential College leads this screening and discussion. In the 80s, the nature of the Latino Diaspora changes again. From Cuba a second wave of refugees to the United States—the Mariel exodus—floods Miami. The same decade sees the sudden arrival of hundreds of thousands of Central Americans (Salvadorans, Guatemalans, and Nicaraguans) fleeing death squads and mass murders at home. By the early 1990s, a political debate over illegal immigration has begun. The March 21 showing is in English, the March 23rd showing is in Spanish.
