The Julian Samora Research Institute at Michigan State University is celebrating its 30th anniversary by hosting a national conference in East Lansing, MI, on Oct. 31 -- Nov. 2, 2019. The conference theme is "Latina/os and the Renewal of U.S. Democracy."

Though haunted by ghosts from his past, Garth has managed to make a life for himself in the small Louisiana town of Lake City. He was brought there from Detroit after a tragic event that left him orphaned. His rescuer, Mother Hubbard and his mentor-turned-father, Peter have become the family he lost.
The Julian Samora Legacy Project website contains scholarly papers from the Julian Samora Archive at the Benson Latin American Collection. The searchable site includes Dr. Samora's papers, featured articles, interviews, timelines, photos, and filmed discussions.
