There will be a screening of the film "Boston's Latino Pioneers" followed by a panel discussion featuring director Blanca Bonilla with "Pioneers" (featured speakers coming soon).


Latino Pioneers in Boston is a documentary featuring 8 Latino Leaders in Boston and their migration journeys. Blanca Bonilla, a seasoned producer, and director whose recent documentary “Dos idiomas Una Comunidad /Two Languages One Community” was well received at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, curated and directed this collection of stories.


This project, Latinos Pioneers in Boston will focus on cultural identity and will provide a vehicle for discussion and education about the impact Latinos have had in the city. Our ultimate goal is to build awareness among community members, especially young people, of the critical role and contributions that Latinos have made to the City of Boston.


This program is co-hosted by the Connolly Library and the Jamaica Plain Historical Society, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
