Somos Latinas: Voices of Wisconsin Latina Activists
October 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In “Somos Latinas,” authors Andrea-Teresa Arenas and Eloisa Gómez share powerful narratives, drawn from the activist interviews they helped conduct as part of the Somos Latinas Digital History Project, housed at the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison, Wisconsin. From outspoken demonstrators to collaborative community-builders to determined individuals working for change behind the scenes, “Somos Latinas” details the inspirational lives and their array of community-building actions. The book also includes the authors’ analysis and in-depth exploration of key themes like motivations, role models, and risk-taking.
