Please join us a for a special free screening of SELENA at the historic Cuauhtemoc Hall, where the legendary Tejano legend performed. Timed w/ Fiestas Patrias (Independence Day in Mexico), the SELENA screening will feature free pizza, live accordion music, and a raffle.
Also, winners of the Selena essay contest -- in the elementary, middle & high school levels -- will be invited to read their original writings, reflecting on the words of Selena concerning the value of learning a second language & embracing one’s cultural origins:
“I feel very proud to be Mexican. I didn’t have the opportunity to learn Spanish when I was a girl, but it’s never too late to get in touch with your roots.”
