Latino Voice of Appalachia at LWC March 3rd, 5th
By Duane Bonifer
Las Voces de los Apalaches will be presented at 7 p.m. CT Thursday, March 3, and Saturday, March 5, in V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson St. The event is free and open to the public. It is being presented in cooperation with Florece en Lindsey.
Las Voces de los Apalaches tells the stories of Appalachian residents who have immigrated to the region from Latin America. Many Latino residents who live in Appalachia have moved from small towns in Mexico, Central America and South America. Las Voces de los Apalaches was created by the University of Kentucky Appalachian Center, where it premiered in 2014.
"This will be a readers theater production," said LWC Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock. "It's a very exciting and interesting show because it reminds us of the rich diversity of cultures that are spread throughout Appalachia. We tend to think of Appalachian culture in monolithic terms, but there is really a great deal of diversity in the region, and this show is an example."
Florece en Lindsey fosters access and success of Latino and other emerging minority students at LWC by forming partnerships with community organizations, developing a climate of intercultural competence, and adopting policies and practices that support student access and success.
Las Voces de los Apalaches will be presented at 7pmCT March 3 and March 5, 2016, in V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY. For more information, contact Robert Brock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
