Naked City’s next Think & Drink is ‘The Latino Lens’

Humanities Washington’s next free event in the Think & Drink series at Naked City Brewery & Taphouse is “The Latino Lens: A Discussion With Filmmaker Enrique Cerna,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10. Naked City is at 8564 Greenwood Ave. N.

Longtime local journalist Enrique Cerna will talk about his upcoming documentary, “Latinos: The Changing Face of Washington.” The event will be moderated by KUOW’s Ross Reynolds. A similar event will be held two days later in Yakima.

Washington’s Latino population grew 71 percent from 2000 to 2010 and is expected to increase even more in the current decade. These free events will use film clips and personal stories to ask what this demographic shift means for our state politics, educational system and society. The conversations will explore what it means to be a longstanding Latino Washingtonian, a recent immigrant, an undocumented worker and someone affected by the DREAM act.
