César Chávez Day Celebration

March 31April 10

Times TBD
Recuerda César Chávez Committee Facebook page HERE

Since 2007, the National Hispanic Cultural Center has collaborated with Albuquerque’s Recuerda a César Chávez Committee (RCCC) to celebrate the life and legacy of the renowned American civil rights leader César Estrada Chávez, co-founder, with Dolores Huerta, of the National Farmworkers Association and subsequently president of the United Farmworkers of America. In previous years, the annual Marcha de Justicia  has departed from the NHCC to begin the day’s activities, returning to the Center for an afternoon community Fiesta. In 2021, we will celebrate with a week of virtual events, taking place from March 31 (César Chávez’ birthday) through April 10 (Dolores Huerta’s birthday). Please join us on the Recuerda a César Chávez Committee’s Facebook page for the 29th Annual César Chávez Day Celebration.

Film: Del corto al largo (y viceversa), Mala espina

April 13

12 pm (MST)

Available for 48 hours

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

Belén Macías’ second feature film, Marsella, dramatizes a tug of war between two women, raising the question of who should have custody of a child—the struggling working-class biological mother unable to raise her “properly,” or the wealthy middle-class adoptive mother who can do so. Does having money give one a greater claim on motherhood?

2013; Spanish with English subtitles; 98 minutes; not rated.

NHCC Children’s Bilingual Book Festival

April 15April 18

9 am-5 pm (MST)

Live online.

Visit the festival website

This annual festival is the only one of its kind in the U.S. that features children’s books in Spanish and English and Indigenous languages and English. The focus on Spanish, English, Indigenous languages books and authors makes this festival particularly meaningful and vibrant, reflecting the identities of many children in New Mexico, the American Southwest, and beyond. We want to encourage children to see themselves in contemporary children’s literature as well as introduce a bilingual body of work to a wider audience. The four-day event features author readings, workshops, and interactive events for kids and families.

Winner of an  International Latino Book Award. “The first time Isabel meets her father-in-law, Omar, he’s already dead—an apparition appearing uninvited on her wedding day. Her husband, Martin, still unforgiving for having been abandoned by his father years ago, confesses that he never knew the old man had died. Omar asks Isabel for the impossible: persuade Omar’s family—especially his wife, Elda—to let him redeem himself.” – Goodreads.
