New Community Cafe: Growing Up Mexipino in San Diego
Join us for this special virtual presentation!
Wednesday, October 26, 2022
This conversation explores the historical and contemporary experiences of San Diego’s Mexipino (Mexican and Filipino) communities across several generations. Dr. Guevarra shows how shared experiences with Spanish colonialism, racial segregation, labor and civil rights struggles, and cultural identity markers such as food, helped forge this distinct multiethnic identity for Mexipinos.
