Chicano Latino Affairs Council Partnership
Chicano Latino Affairs Council
In May 2009, the Minnesota State Legislature asked the Minnesota Humanities Center and four state councils-the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, the Council on Black Minnesotans, the Chicano Latino Affairs Council, and the Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans-to collaboratively create new programs and events that celebrates and preserves the artistic, historical, and cultural heritages of the communities represented by each council.
The Humanities Center's work with the Chicano Latino Affairs Council (CLAC) has focused on conveying the contributions of Minnesota's Latino community to the arts, culture, and economy of our state through three related video programs:
1. Absent Narratives: St. Paul's West Side
2. Latino Arts: A Community Vision
3. Latinos, Business and the Arts
