ASB Speaker Series: In Celebration of Latinx Culture hosted by CLUV

 

ASB Speaker Series: In Celebration of Latinx Culture hosted by Chicano Latino United Voices

Classes were invited to the celebration on October 12 to be a witness to an inspirational display of Latinx culture during National Hispanic Heritage month. Acts include traditional mariachi singing, spoken word, dance, and a film examining the effects of DACE on the BHS students.

CLUV hopes that the BHS community will watch this presentation with open minds and hearts, only to leave feeling they have learned about the valuable culture Latinx students bring to campus.
