Testimony and Communal Memory

Testimonio is a political tradition across Latin America and typically features first-person narration of one’s lived experiences. This presentation will discuss the importance of recording testimonio with community elders in order to preserve not just their individual stories but also to foster a communal memory of Latinos in Kansas that is often left out of the official records.
