Hispanic Heritage Month Film Series

By Ione Damasco

The University Libraries Diversity and Inclusion Team and Welcome Dayton will host a fall film series that includes a variety of films on Hispanic heritage.  The events are free and open to the public and refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited to 30 and is on a first come, first serve basis.  

Each film is PATH-eligible for University of Dayton students and will be followed by a facilitated discussion of the film's content.  Students must stay for both the film screening and discussion to receive PATH credit.  

The series will take place in the University of Dayton LTC Forum (Roesch Library ground floor), 300 College Park, Dayton, OH 45469. Questions? Please contact Ione Damasco, Coordinator of Cataloging and chair of the Libraries Diversity Inclusion Team.

Monday, Oct. 8, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Dolores (2017)
Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change. 
Monday, Oct. 22, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Forbidden is a documentary of the life of Moises Serrano as an undocumented immigrant and gay man living in rural North Carolina.
