The Mexican Community Commemorates September 11th
Published April 15, 2008

Headlined, the Mexican Corridos (Ballads) of September 11th, artists of all crafts will commemorate our nation’s losses on that tragic day.

 

A lecture on these corridos inspired by that tragic day will be held by Professor John H McDowell from Indiana University. Having had taught courses at IU on both Chicano folklore and the folklore of Mexico, McDowell is credited with making the documentary, Poetry and Violence: The Ballad Tradition of Mexico's Costa Chica. There will be a reception with music by Grupo Santa Ana, a group of Mexican norteño musicians. On top of that, photographs of Mexican subway musicians by Antonio Martínez Alva will be on display, along with the 9/11 National Tribute Quilt. This event will be presented by Mano a Mano: Mexican Culture Without Borders at the American Folk Art Museum.
