Latinx Tour: Further Resources

The cultural and historical legacy of the Latino/a/x community in DC cannot be summarized in a ten-stop tour, nor should it be confined to a single learning experience. This “stop” on the tour offers a collection of resources for research and education. It also acknowledges the individuals who helped make this tour possible.
