"Afro-Latinos," writes Dr. Damany Fisher of Mt. San Antonio College, "helped shape the character of California much as Puritans shaped the character of New England." In his book, Dr. Fisher uncovers the great extent to which people of mixed African descent shaped our history.
This event is part of the Cultural Crossroads lecture series, aimed at exploring the modern day relevencies and reflections found in the settling of California. History, community, and politics collide in these edgy, open-ended discussions with California's prominent professors of history.
Wine and Damany Fisher's book will both be sold to benefit Friends of Peralta Hacienda Historical Park.
