"The Day of the Dead
El Día de los Muertos: Mexican Traditions of Remembrance"


Mexicans celebrate the Día de los Muertos the first two days of November, a tradition that has survived the passage of time throughout Mexico and beyond. Dr. Carrillo takes us on a multimedia journey as he explores how Mexican cultures of remembrance have transformed the mourning for the dead into a romantic and nostalgic celebration of life.

This year, ENHLS will honor the Latino American experience, as part of the "Hecho in the U.S.A" program, which explores various aspects of Latino/Latina culture.
