Seven String Barbed-Wire Fence The Many Faces of Latino Immigration in the U.S., April 16, 3:00 p.m. at the Main Library

Join us at 3:00 p.m. at the Main Library on Saturday, April 16 for an important presentation from the New Mexico Humanities Council's Chautauqua series. Seven String Barbed-Wire Fence aims to provide a balanced, informative account of the often emotionally-charged issue of Latino Immigration to the U.S.  A polyphonic multimedia presentation gives a human face to the issue: different voices, independent and disunited are bound by the common theme of immigration.  Photos, montages and three-dimensional installation examples document the formidable barriers along the border environment and provide a comprehensive portrayal of the actors and arguments within the post-9/11 debate over policy reform.

This program is funded by the New Mexico Humanities Council and the Department of Cultural Affairs.
