Presentation by Dr. Carlos Contreras, History Professor, an expert in Latin American History, who will explain the significance of the celebration and will highlight the events that took place before and after the battle.  Mariachi play traditional songs and wear the authentic “charro” costume typical of this music genre.  Students will be able to follow the songs with handouts and will be able to request songs of their choice.  Dancing will be encouraged with the many Latin American students that are part of the GC student population.  This event will also help to clarify the misconception that 5 de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day.  The students will also have the opportunity to sample authentic Mexican food that will be sold by Sodexho and taste Mexican sweet bread courtesy of WACC.
