Livestream: Latinx Identities in Missouri
In the third offering of the Latinx Communities in Missouri (LCIM) webinar series, Curators’ Distinguished Professor and filmmaker Juanamaría Cordones-Cook presents her documentary Nancy Morejón: Famous Landscapes (2013). Images and sounds of her poetry reading, her home, and Havana’s landscape bring an insightful portrait of the gender, racial and cultural identities that characterize Morejón’s literary output. Following the documentary, Cordones-Cook will talk with social scientist María Rodríguez-Alcalá about the diverse racial and cultural identities of the Latinx communities.
The Latinx Communities in Missouri (LCIM) initiative is a collaborative effort to ensure the contributions of Missouri’s Latinx communities are included in Bicentennial celebrations. LCIM collaborative institutions include Missouri 2021, The State Historical Society of Missouri, University of Missouri, MU Extension, MU Cambio Center, Alianzas, and the Hispanic Leaders Group of St. Louis.
