This will be the first installment in a public program series taking place on Thursdays during the month of February exploring the rich, varied history of Latino Americans who have helped shape the United States. Goodrich will provide historical context in which to better understand the roots of Latino American culture in North America from 1565-1880, as well as its influence on what will eventually become the United States. Topics will include Native Americans of North and Meso-America and their respective clashes with Spanish and British settlers within the context of Westward Expansion and Manifest Destiny.
