Race Matters
Central American Representation in an Era of Misrepresentation
Víctor Interiano
Thurs, April 25th, 6 PM
Workshop Presentation/MCC Lounge

In the eyes of the white American imaginary, Central America was once simply a region on a map,but over the course of the 20th century, Central America went from being America's convenient grocery aisle , to an inconvenient Cold War hot potato, to a clandestine grave where the United States buried all its complicity. Now, in the 21st century, as the torogozes, quetzales, and guaras have come home to roost, Central America is once again in the spotlight. Join Víctor Interiano, creator of the Central American platform, Dichos de un bicho, as we navigate through a mainstream narrative so poor on history and context that it borders on misrepresentation, and deconstruct the popular imagery that have pigeonholed Central Americans into a binary of either tattooed victimizer or caged victim. Let's set the record straight!
