Hartnell College will present a series of lectures, documentary films and performances April 24-28 to celebrate the cultures and people of Latin America.
The weeklong event, called "Sabores Latinos: Celebrating the Cultures of Latin America," is free and open to the public, according to Molly Lewis, coordinator of Hartnell's International/Intercultural Education Programs.
"Our activities," she said, "will highlight a few of the many contributions that Latin America makes to the world. The week of events is an opportunity for the campus and community to sample the variety and breadth of cultural expression coming out of this dynamic region."
