- Esther Blazon, Advisory Committee Chair, Boulder County Latino History Project
These speakers are part of the Boulder County Latino History Project, created in 2013 to document and share the history of Latinos in the county. They will be discussing how this initiative engaged high school and college interns volunteers and other community members, many of them Latino, in gathering oral histories, newspapers, photographs and other primary source materials. This information is available on the project website, through presentations to school and community groups, and through a two-volume set of books titled Latinos of Boulder County, Colorado, 1900-1980 written by Marjorie McIntosh, CU Boulder Distinguished Professor Emerita. The project is now focused on helping K-12 teachers in Boulder County and around the state to incorporate Latino history and culture into the curriculum.
The lecture is in English and no registration is required. The presentation is part of CU on the Weekend, which is free and open to the public. Classroom opens 30 minutes before start time. Seating is limited to the first 200 people.
