Veronica Castillo is our 2020 invited guest speaker for our Coloquio en Español Series sponsored by Sigma Delta Pi Gamma Lambda Chapter, the Spanish Program and the Department of Language and Literature at Texas A&M University, Kingsville. Her presentation commemorates the installation of the 1st National Sigma Delta Pi Chapter at UC Berkeley, 100 years ago. In the spirit of our society we bring to the A&M community her presentation "Voz y Expresión del Barro: Existir, Resistir y Sobrevivir Usando el Arte Como Voz de Voces que Son Calladas."
