The Office of Inclusive Excellence, Ball State University Libraries, Friends of Bracken Library, the Multicultural Center, and the Office of the Provost invite you to attend a screening of the film Latino Americans: Peril and Promise (2013) as part of Reel Inclusion: A Film Series. This program takes place Wednesday, October 13 at 5:30 p.m. in AJ 175.

Peril and Promise, an installment in the 6-part PBS documentary series Latino Americans, presents a history of the diverse communities of Latinx peoples of many nationalities living in the United States from 1980 to the 21st century. The film highlights the challenges, obstacles, and perils faced by many Hispanic immigrants during this time while also detailing the vibrant communities, economic successes, and rich artistic and cultural legacies of Latinos in the United States. Mike Martinez, a doctoral student here at Ball State in our Higher Education EdD program and a Doctoral Assistant for the Pathways Mentoring Project, will be facilitating the discussion.
