In a bit I'm going to start getting ready for our table that will be at the Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena. I'm really looking forward to hearing the group Novalima and what seems will be a rocking night of Afro/Peruvian fusion y más.
In the meantime I'm getting myself ready to really focus on preparing for this year's Latino Heritage parade and jamaica. It's set for October 15th - although the day has been set for months, who knows how the event will evolve this year.
This image was taken by former Latino Heritage board president Yvonne Chavez Lombardi a while back. Artist/illustrator Javier Harriman is working with students at Washington Middle School helping them learn about 20 Day Names and then helping develop headwear reflecting that information which was worn in the parade.
Our focus this year is on the era that followed World War II and ended in the mid-50s.
