Description: Join the Chicano Alumni Club in discussing what it means to identify as Latinx. The discussion will utilize the book Finding Latinx: In Seach of the Voices Redefining Latino Identity by Paola Ramos as a tool to better understand Young Latinos across the United States are redefining their identities, pushing boundaries, and awakening politically in powerful and surprising ways. Many of them—Afrolatino, indigenous, Muslim, queer and undocumented, living in large cities and small towns—are voices who have been chronically overlooked in how the diverse population of almost sixty million Latinos in the U.S. has been represented. No longer. In this empowering cross-country travelogue, journalist and activist Paola Ramos embarks on a journey to find the communities of people defining the controversial term, “Latinx.”
