Program to focus on Latino experience
The dynamics of immigration and the history of Latinos in Kansas will be told through visual art and poetry at a presentation at 1 p.m. Jan. 7 at Peabody American Legion post, 108 N. Walnut St., Peabody.
José Faus, independent teacher, artist, and founder of Latino Writers Collective, will explore the Latino presence and experience in Kansas in a program sponsored by Humanities Kansas and Flint Hills Counterpoint.
The presentation will include an interactive exploration of a personal journey from the heart of Colombia to the heart of the United States and the conundrum of belonging in unfamiliar surroundings while straddling two different cultures and narratives.
Faus also will speak about the Latino presence in Marion County.
The program will be free, but donations to Peabody Community Foundation’s Angel Fund in memory of Peabody immigrant Angel Torres will be accepted.
