The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is celebrating its 50th Anniversary as a continuously funded federal Title VI National Resource Center (1965-2015).

This event will showcase fifty years of teaching, research, and public engagement, with exhibits on CLACS history as well as displays of faculty and student production. There will be a series of short performances by UWM faculty and students and a special guest performance by Proyecto Bembe, an Afro-Caribbean percussion group based at Bruce Guadalupe School. A reception will follow the performances.

The celebration is free and open to the public.

Cosponsored by the College of Letters and Science, Office of the Provost, Roberto Hernandez Center (UW-Milwaukee), Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies (UW-Madison), and Colectivo Coffee.
