Roots of Carnaval – 40 años de Cultura en la Misión

Sábado, 5 de mayo, 2018 • 5PM
Galería Juan R. Fuentes de Acción Latina
2958 24th Street, San Francisco

Desde 1978, Carnaval ha sido más que una celebración, ha sido un espacio para volver a conectarnos con nuestras raíces africanas, indígenas y mestizas. Las historias, bailes y colores de nuestros antepasados cobran vida en el desfile y el festival para celebrar nuestros triunfos y luchas. Aunque nuestras raíces se extienden por América Latina y el Caribe, nuestras culturas se unen en nuestra tradición anual de Carnaval.

Para el 40 aniversario del Carnaval, Acción Latina y Carnaval SF unen sus fuerzas para ofrecerles una exposición fotográfica muy especial, con imágenes icónicas de cuatro décadas de historia de la mayor fiesta anual del barrio de la Misión.
