Secrets of Little Havana: A “Making Heritage” Tour
Are you curious about stories that are silenced?
Do you want to know how myths become “history”?
Do you care about the people excluded from “official” histories? When you learn about the “making” of Little Havana, you also learn about the making of ideas about race, ethnicity and immigration in the U.S. and Latin America: ideas reflected in the headlines of today.
Black Little Havana Tour
On this unique walking tour of Little Havana, I share stories about people of African descent invisibilized, under-represented, or misrepresented in popular accounts about Little Havana, Cuba and Latin America. Learn about the contributions of Afrodescendants; creative acts of resistance, resilience and black placemaking; and U.S./Latin American histories of racial segregation, anti-black policymaking and anti-black violence.
Urban Eco-Spirituality Walk
On this lecture tour in Little Havana, I teach about eco-spirituality as a practice of resilience and connection. How do we cope in a world still enduring the effects of colonialism? How do the lessons of eco-spirituality help us re-define our relationship with what we think of as “nature”? How might we think differently about our bodies and our relationship to “the body”? How might we recognize the sacred in our everyday landscapes? We’ll reflect on these topics during this walk.
