This play was performed by Mixed Blood Theatre of Minneapolis for a full-house audience of 130 students, faculty, staff, and Duluth community members. Written by Joe Minjares and Thomas Benitez, the play joyfully embraces four generations of a family and the entire 20 th century in its spirited illumination of Mexican-American history. With energetic corridos (story-songs), optimism, and humor, the play celebrates the accomplishments, character, and aspirations of Latinos in Minnesota and across the country.
Minnecanos was cosponsored by the Diversity Commission, the Hispanic/Latino/Chicana Learning Resource Center, and the Latino/Chicana Student Association.
