A Vision of History through Fresco…

Mundos de Mestizaje by Frederico Vigil is a mural housed in the Torreón on the campus of the National Hispanic Cultural Center. This monumental fresco depicts thousands of years of Hispanic history highlighting diverse cultural connections between people and places from the Iberian Peninsula to the Americas. The 4,000 square foot painting is one of the largest frescos in North America.

The digitized imagery of the painting ensures that this culturally significant work can be a sharing and learning experience for students and families anywhere. We invite you to explore the imagery, history and complexities of the Mundos de Mestizaje mural.

10:30 am

David V. Holtby will present “Lest We Forget, World War 1 and New Mexico.” The title of Mr. Holtby’s presentation is from his recently published book by the same name, which will be available for purchase at the meeting for $33.

More than 14,000 New Mexicans served in uniform during World War 1 and thousands more contributed to the American home front. Yet today in New Mexico, as elsewhere the Great War and the lives it affected are scarcely remembered. Lest We Forget confronts that amnesia. The first detailed study to describe New Mexico’s wartime mobilization, its soldiers combat experiences, and its veterans postwar lives. The book offers a poignant account of the profound changes these Americans underwent both during and after the war.

David V. Holtby is the author of “Forty Seventh Star: New Mexico’s Struggle for Statehood: and has served as Associate Director and Editor in Chief of Universisty of New Mexico Press. Hope to see you at the September meeting.

¡Cine Magnífico! Albuquerque’s Latino Film Festival 2018: Matar a Jesus / Killing Jesus

7 pm

Paula, a young Colombian student, witnesses the cold-blooded murder of her father. After facing the inefficiency of the police, she accidentally crosses paths with the hitman who did the job. Driven by her anger, frustration and pain, the choice of revenge seems to be the only possible reaction… But what if both of them are the victims of a violent and corrupt system? Inspired by true events

Un par de meses después del asesinato de su padre, Paula, una joven de 22 años se cruzará con Jesús, el sicario que disparó a su padre. A partir de este momento se verá forzada a definir los límites de su propia humanidad. El encuentro entre víctima y agresor revelará cuánto cuesta matar a un hombre, especialmente cuando el otro es el reflejo de uno mismo: una víctima más.
