Bob Holman, Vincent Medina, Odilia Romero Hernández, and Virginia Carmelo with linguist Leanne Hinton
In conversation
October 21, 2017

THIS PROGRAM WAS CONDUCTED IN BOTH SPANISH AND ENGLISH.

The essence of who we are is wrapped up in our language. What human knowledge is lost when a language goes extinct? Why should we care? Join ALOUD for a freewheeling conversation among language activists working to reclaim indigenous languages in California and Mexico. For the first time together on stage, this unique group of participants includes: master linguist and language preservationist Leanne Hinton; Native California language activists Vincent Medina and Virginia Carmelo; Odilia Romero Hernández, Zapotec language rights activist; and poet/activist Bob Holman, co-producer of the PBS documentary, Language Matters.

Simultaneous interpretation provided by Antena Los Ángeles.

This program was produced as part of The Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative.
