Saturday I'll be participating in the Los Angeles policy seminar: California's K-12 Latino Curriculum - what's missing? Really excited about the chance to have input regarding curriculum.
During the course of the seminar Dr. David Hayes-Bautista, Professor fo Medicine and Director of the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture at the School of Medicine at UCLA, will present data that covers 1769-2010. Sounds like dense material, but he like other fine teachers, manages to distill lots of facts and share in a way that is both enlightening and entertaining.
He'll also be presenting information covered in his soon to be published book "El Cinco de Mayo. An American Tradition". Turns out the deeper origins of Cinco de Mayo have more to do with the Mason/Dixon than Mexico City.
In the evening I'll be attending an event supporting the Placita Methodist Church.
Knowing Larry, he will be at home, trying to see where else in the house he might lean his head.
