May 5, 2011 - Cinco de Mayo Fiesta
The Office of Institutional Diversity welcomed The Ballet Folklorico Tierra, Flora y Canto to perform dances from several areas of Mexico. As their finale, they even invited members of the audience to dance with them!
Cinco de Mayo is a date of great importance for the Mexican and Chicano communities. It marks the victory of the Mexican Army over the French at the Battle of Puebla. Although the Mexican Army was eventually defeated, the "Batalla de Puebla" came to represent a symbol of Mexican unity and patriotism.
Thank you to all who wore their gay? fine by me shirt in celebrating National Coming Out Day!
