The Carlos Rosario School is the first adult charter school in the nation and serves immigrant populations from over 80 countries. This year they partnered with the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum for one school year to re-install the Gateways/Portales exhibit. This award-winning exhibition is fully bilingual (English/Spanish) and speaks on the triumphs, tribulations, and immigration stories of Latinx peoples to Washington, DC, and Baltimore, MD, through interactive panels, photos, and art.
Jim Reese will facilitate an exploration of how the content of the exhibition can be used in various contexts, while an artist featured in the exhibition will lead the culminating portion of the evening.
Participants will enjoy light refreshments while being guided through the exhibit by Carlos Rosario School students.
