CLAC EVENTS!   A biweekly news blast that promotes community-wide events targeting students, faculty, staff, and alumni at Rutgers University. Unless noted, all events are free and open to the public.

EXHIBITION: Las Tres Hermanas Exhibition
Now through December 14, 9 AM-5 PM
CLAC @ 172 College Avenue

Tour our special exhibition, Las Tres Hermanas: Art, Education and Activism, honoring Puerto Rican activists sisters Elba Cabrera, Lillian López, and Dr. Evelina Antonetty. Las Tres Hermanas tells the story of three sisters, Evelina, Lillian and Elba, who profoundly changed the cultural and political landscape in New York-especially the Bronx-through their passion and advocacy, and had left a lasting legacy in their community. They understood that maintaining and expressing one's culture was an act of resistance and an affirmation of Puerto Rican identity.

Cosponsored by the Department of Latino and Caribbean Studies.

Saturday and Sunday, November 17-18

Rutgers Academic Building, Room 2400 (East Wing)

This conference seeks to bridge the gap between the university, artists, and communities in struggle. This process opens up possibilities to exchange knowledge with community leaders, artists, and organizers, contribute to the well-being of minoritized communities and collectives that seek to advance decolonization, while also contributing towards the decolonization of knowledge in the academy and other spaces.

Hosted by the Rutgers Advanced Institute for Critical Caribbean Studies (RAICCS) and sponsored by the Program in Comparative Literature To register, and for complete information about the event, visit:<>.

PERFORMANCE: Redhawk Native American Dancers

Busch Student Center, Multipurpose Room
604 Bartholomew Rd, Pisctataway, NJ 08854
Since 1993, the Redhawk Native American Arts Council's performing artists have been sharing Native American dance, music, art and history with audiences around the world. The Redhawk Native American Dancers create high energy, exciting programs by combining live singing and drumming with traditional dances, social dances, and articulate verbal interpretation. Designed to entertain, educate and foster a positive image of our nation's first culture, their programs combine traditions from various nations, helping our audiences understand the vast differences between Native American Nations.
Presented by the Cultural Center Collaborative in honor of Native American Heritage Month.


The Center for Latino Arts and Culture's (CLAC) was established in 1992 to research, document, interpret and promote Latin@, Hispanic, Caribbean, and Latin American arts and culture. CLAC seeks to build a student-centered, learning community where students can better integrate experiential, academic and service learning about Latino arts and culture in order to become strong leaders and responsible global citizens. We advocate for the wellbeing of our students and work to create effective access to University services and resources. Through dynamic collaboration with other academic and student affairs units, the Center works to enhance Latino student recruitment, retention and successful graduation at Rutgers University.
