Telling Our Stories
Shadows then Light: Cultural Citizenship on the Ground
Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center
Join us for an intercultural gathering to experience the creative processes and practices the immigration movement is using to build an active community while adding to the vibrancy of U.S. society. Learn how undocumented students and community activists are challenging ideas of citizenship and identity through music, photography, spoken word, and storytelling. Be a part of this inspiring collective and tell us your story on Migration and Transformation.
Migration & Transformation is a project of the Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change that highlights the different migration experiences of people living in the U.S. and how this shapes their identities and sense of belonging in our society.
