The sessions focus on the historical, cultural, and religious roles that Roman Catholicism played in sustaining ethnic identity for numerous waves of Mexican Catholic immigrants who settled throughout Chicagoland during the last century.
Guests include award-winning Chicago novelist, Luis Alberto Urrea, Chicago native NPR’s Latino USA Anchor and Producer, María Hinojosa.
