Merienda Talk: Community Power In South Central

Start Date: Mar 6, 2024 End Date: Mar 6, 2024 From: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Free Event - Join us for a discussion of the South Central neighborhood’s history of community organizing and action! Led by Dr. Cynthia Renteria (Heritage Tourism Coordinator, El Paso County), this talk will feature residents from different generations to highlight some of the many ways in which the South Central area has come together to better their neighborhood for themselves and future generations, from the parents who fought for the construction of Jefferson High School to more recent efforts to improve public spaces. Attendees are encouraged to come ready to share their own recollections and memories of the area. ... Merienda Talks are a free ongoing series at the El Paso Museum of History that explore current exhibits through informal conversation with experts. In Mexico, “merienda” is a time to share conversation with friends over a bite to eat. In the spirit of merienda, our talks bring the public and professionals together to discover exhibits through discussion
