A Mexican State of Mind: Migrant Creatives in NYC

End Date: 4/3/2021
Event Description:


Join Dr. Melissa Castillo Planas, author of A Mexican State of Mind: New York City and the New Borderlands of Culture, alongside Mexican MCs Juan Carlos Romero and Audry Funk for a virtual discussion on Mexican creativity in New York City. The book explores the cultural and creative lives of the largely young undocumented Mexican population in New York City since September 11, 2001. This book is based on ten years of fieldwork with members of a vibrant community of Mexican migrants, focusing on youth culture including hip hop, graffiti, muralism, labor activism, arts entrepreneurship, and collective making. The spoken word poets will perform their work, followed by a Q&A. Moderated by Saralinda Lichtblau, HRM Assistant Director, Education.

*Support provided by Art Bridges. This program was developed in collaboration with The Mexican Studies Institute at the City University of New York, Lehman College
