While walking around the event, I ended up talking with a woman named Victoria for a little while. She had helped build an altar with the Beacon Hills Arts Program. In the altar there were pictures of all the people in Beacon Hills that were killed by police officers in 2017. There was also a baby carriage and rocking horse by the front that she said was there for when the children walked by to see the altars. After, I went downstairs where the vendors were selling posters and clothing and such. Many of the posters had a powerful message about life and resistance. Through the door was an area where children were dancing with skull faces painted on. Here they were passing out bread and Mexican hot chocolate to dip it in. Overall, I had a great time and feel like I’ve learned more about Latinx culture.
