José Torres-Tama explores the underbelly of the North American Dream mythology, the Latino immigrant experience in the United States, and Creole culture in New Orleans through spoken word poetry, critical essays, visual arts, short films, and performance art. In this multi-media lecture, the artist explores the widespread hysteria of “illegal aliens” driven by groups and individuals who have stoked the fires of xenophobia and inspired hate crimes against Latinos across the U.S. The lecture will be followed by a reception.
