12:00 PM Film: Chicano Legacy Join the UCSD students to view this short documentary on the power of students to make change. The Chicano Legacy Mural was commissioned at UC San Diego in 2011 as a response to racist incidents on campus. This film explores how the first ever permanent, minority-inspired public artwork on campus has inspired students and its impact on campus life.

The screening will be followed by a Q & A with the filmmakers Horacio Jones and Jorge Mariscal, as well as with folks featured in the film, including Fnann Keflezighi.

5:30 PM Discussion: Holocaust Remembrance How should we think about the transmission of Holocaust memory more than seventy years after the defeat of Nazi Germany? What lessons do the events of the Shoah bear for a moment in which far-right political movements are once again on the rise? In order to address such questions, Michael Rothberg considers immigrants' engagement with the Holocaust in contemporary Germany. The works of art, literature and performance that he will discuss model alternative ways of remembering the Nazi genocide in the twenty-first century and suggest possibilities for an ethically and politically engaged memory work.

7:00 PM Book Signing: Lawn Boy Novelist Jonathan Evison will discuss and sign his new novel, Lawn Boy. For Mike Muñoz, a young Chicano living in Washington State, life has meant a whole lot of waiting for something to happen. Not too many years out of high school and still doing menial work—and just fired from his latest gig as a lawn boy on a landscaping crew—he knows he's got to be the one to shake things up if he's ever going to change his life. But how? Lawn Boy is an important, entertaining and completely winning novel about social class distinctions, about overcoming cultural discrimination, and about standing up for oneself.

8:00 PM Music: Bebel Gilberto The multi-Grammy-nominated Bebel Gilberto will release her new album Tudo on Sony Masterworks in August 2014; her first studio recording in five years. Tudo, which means "everything" in English, showcases Bebel's ethereal vocals and wistful, dreamy song writing in each of the CD's 12 tracks. Bebel splits her time between Rio de Janeiro and New York City; she's exquisitely synthesized musical influences from both cities in every track. Bebel's sultry tonality is constant throughout Tudo as are the warm and playful Brazilian rhythms that include the berimbau, wood bongos and shakers. The gorgeous melodies are shaped by touches of electronica, and Bebel's intimate vocals hint at a fantastical Rio de Janeiro.
