  1. Latinos Beyond Reel: Challenging a Media Stereotype

    October 16, 2020, 8:00 AM - October 22, 2020 @ Virtual Streaming Event. Register at http://latinosbeyondreelhollandhrc.eventbrite.com

    Latinos are the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population, and among the most diverse -- accounting for one-sixth of all Americans and tracing their origins to more than 20 countries. They are also a rising force in American politics. Yet across the American media landscape, from the broadcast airwaves to cable television and Hollywood film, the reality and richness of the Latino experience are difficult to find. In Latinos Beyond Reel scholars, journalists, community leaders uncover a pattern of gross misrepresentation and gross under-representation of Latinos in US news and entertainment media, where Latinos tend to appear, if at all, as gangsters and Mexican bandits, harlots and prostitutes, drug dealers and welfare-leeching illegals. The film challenges viewers to think critically about the wide-ranging effects of these media stereotypes, and to envision alternative representations and models of production more capable of capturing the humanity and diversity of real Latinos
