La Raza Graduation: April 27, 2019

At the end of March, in collaboration with WGSP and the UNT Department of Theatre and Dance, LMAS will have a special film screening of the documentary Frida: A Ribbon Around a Bomb. Using rare, never-before-seen footage, family interviews, and photographs, this documentary explores the intimate details of the life of Frida Kahlo.
