"Punished for Speaking Spanish: Maria and Elena Tell Their Stories"
|Sunday, May 06, 2018, 10:00am - 11:00pm
Cindy Provencio conducted an oral history project to complete her master's thesis on the topic of racial segregation and discrimination in Grant County. Maria Dominguez and Elena Cisneros were two of the participants. Although more than 20 years apart in age, they both experienced physical and emotional abuse for speaking Spanish at the hands of some of their teachers while attending Bayard Elementary. Although this is not a Family Program Sunday, there will be childcare available for parents who would like to attend. There will be coffee and conversation after the service, and visitors are always welcome.
