Perspectives on Ethnic Studies

From Juan Tejeda:

Colleagues and Camaradas: Palo Alto College and Gemini Ink are sponsoring a Civil Rights Panel/Community talk entitled "Perspectives on Ethnic Studies: Is a Multicultural Education a Civil Right?" (see attached poster), next week, Thursday, February 7 at the Palo Alto College Performing Arts Center Main Theatre (1400 Villaret). There will be a free screening of the award-winning documentary film, Precious Knowledge, at 11am, with the panel discussion to take place immediately after from about 12:15-2:15pm. We have some interesting panelists so it should prove to be a lively discussion on this very important educational issue. Do we have a right to learn about our own history and culture in our schools? How should this manifest itself? Come and join in on the discussion. It's free and open to the community. A reception with light food and drinks will follow the panel discussion. Hope to see you there and please spread the palabra. Gracias. Juan
