Voces & Manoa in Braceros: How We Remember

Join two of the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Summer Institutes for Youth programs, Voces and the Manoa Project, as they are joined by the Arizona-based Safos Dance Theater for Braceros: How We Remember at the National Hispanic Cultural Center on Saturday, June 22 at 2pm. Through dance and movement, teens explore the migrant labor program that brought over two million Mexican laborers to the U.S. for short-term work in the Forties, Fifties and Sixties. For more information on this free, all-ages event, see nhccnm.org.
