Latinx & Caribbean History Celebration

The celebration's goals are:

  1. Build community amongst Latinx and Caribbean people at Dartmouth
  2. Recognize and uplift Latinx and Caribbean history and contemporary experiences

This year's theme is: Under the Same Moon

Inspired by the film Bajo la Misma Luna

The theme places an emphasis on unity among all Latinx and Caribbean communities that exist at Dartmouth. "Under the Same Moon" acknowledges the nuanced differences in culture and traditions among people in our communities, as well as various shared experiences, including resistance, resilience, and vibrant celebration. This is reflected in making some noise on campus and the sharing of music, food, and dance.
