Wednesday, March 27th, 2019, 6:30PM-8:00PM
Jefferson County Library, 620 Cedar Ave, Port Hadlock
Professor Carlos Gil sought to understand immigration by tracing his family’s history from the 1920s to the 1970s. In the process, he discovered the excitement, culture shock, inter-family conflict, and questions of identity that many immigrants face when seeking a better life in another country. Based on his book, “We Became Mexican-American: How Our Immigrant Family Survived to Pursue the American Dream,” this talk explores Mexican immigration by spotlighting his own family’s experience in southern California, including parallels with Washington State. Co-sponsored by Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau.
