¡Liberacion! Reclaiming Cinco de Mayo

Liberacion.jpg

ART SHOW | $5 | ALL AGES | The Kids Next Door are hosting an art show featuring Latinx artists reclaiming their power and voices on day generally marked by white appropriation.

Cinco de mayo is the day Mexico won an unlikely battle against France at the Battle of Puebla—NOT Mexican Independence Day. It is not celebrated in Mexican culture, but non-Latinx people have turned the cinco de mayo into a day of stereotyping and belittling our heritage. We want our community to have an opportunity to change that dynamic and instead, celebrate our existence. 

Later Event: May 6
