Every year, our scholar-artists self-produce cultural heritage showcases to celebrate the diversity that makes our community so powerful and special. For National Hispanic Heritage Month, scholar-artists performed an incredible array of dance, music, poetry, and talked about the significance and impact of the hispanic population in Chicago.
