Hispanic Heritage Month at the Mission Branch
Every year from September 15 to October 15, the U.S. celebrates its Hispanic heritage, focusing on the culture and traditions of Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, Spain, and South America. On Saturday, Oct 3rd, the Mission Branch Library offered dance, poetry, and music celebrating a variety of traditions from Mexico, the Caribbean, and Argentina. Participating in the program were De Colores [pictured] -- demonstrating Mexican traditional dances, Maria Medina (performing poetry and percussion), Jurek Mazur (of the Academia de Tango Argentino, presenting the history of Argentine Tango), and Xiuhcoatl Danza Azteca.
