As part of Black History Month, join Dr. Romina Pacheco, Social Justice and Equity Specialist at Collaborative for Educational Services, to discuss the term Afrolatinidad and briefly learn about key events in Latin America that gave birth to the term. Participants will also have an opportunity to reflect on, and dialogue about, how the contemporary experiences of Afro-Latinx people relate to their own experiences.

Open to Black/Latinx/Caribbean students and alums.

Co-sponsored by the Eliana Ortega Cultural Center and Community & Inclusion.

Romina A. Pacheco was born and raised in the Caribbean city of Maracay, Venezuela. Romina’s early work as an educator focused on teaching English as a Foreign Language, and Spanish as a Second Language. Romina’s career as an educator shifted when she migrated to the United States in her mid-20s where most of her work has concentrated in teaching Social Justice Education and Critical Multicultural Education in both institutions of higher education and the K-12 school system. Romina has a M.Ed in Social Justice Education from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and a Ph.D from New Mexico State University where she studied Curriculum & Instruction and Gender & Sexuality Studies.
