Resized Image Resized Image

MidwestLatino was featured in May's edition of "The Bottom Line", a monthly publication of NSHMBA (National Society of Hispanic MBAs)

NSHMBA was created in 1988 as a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. Widely known as the "Premier Hispanic Organization," NSHMBA serves 29 chapters and 6,500 members in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. It exists to foster Hispanic leadership through graduate management education and professional development. NSHMBA works to prepare Hispanics for leadership positions throughout the U.S., so that they can provide the cultural awareness and sensitivity vital in the management of the nation’s diverse workforce.

2006 is a very important year for the Cincinnati chapter of NSHMBA, as it will host the 17th Annual National Conference of this organization. There are over 7,000 Hispanic MBA's expected to come to the conference, and with this number this will be definitely the biggest gathering of Hispanic professionals in history of Cincinnati.

To become member of NSHMBA, please contact our Cincinnati chapter's Vice President of Membership, Juan Lazarde.

What a week! After teaching senior citizens Merengue an Tuesday (read more here), on Friday it was time to teach kids from a Cincinnati elementary school some funky Latin moves.

It was part of Arts Day in the school, and in addition to Hip-Hop, Swing, and Country dancers, we've been invited to introduce close to 600 kids Grade 1-6 to Salsa and Merengue. It was done in groups throughout the day, with the biggest class having 96 students. It was a great fun and kids loved the Latin dancing!

Community : Senate passes sweeping immigration bill
Posted by admin on 2006/5/25 18:20:00 (1312 reads)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate on Thursday passed an immigration overhaul that would give millions of illegal immigrants a chance to become American citizens, as backers braced for a bruising battle with the House of Representatives.

The Senate voted 62-36 for the bipartisan bill that couples border security and enforcement with a guest worker program and a plan that would put most of the 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants on a path to U.S. citizenship.

It is the most sweeping immigration bill in two decades and has to be merged with a vastly different House bill that calls for tough border security and enforcement measures.
President George W. Bush has said he supports a comprehensive approach to immigration reform along the lines passed by the Senate.

But it is unclear lawmakers will be able to work out the differences before the November congressional elections. Republican opponents said they would try to rewrite the bill.

Community : Senior Citizens celebrating Latino style (May 23, 2006)
Posted by admin on 2006/5/24 9:00:00 (1718 reads)

Jeanne Marie Stophlet and her friends are organizing every month a lunch for Senior citizens in the Over-the-Rhine community center on Race St., to help them to connect with others, to meet old friends and to make new ones. Each time there is a different theme for the lunch, and this time it was the Latino theme. It was a great opportunity to take some pictures with a sombrero, listen to hot Latin rhythms, and learn some Merengue.

Also present was Cecil Thomas, member of Cincinnati's City Council.

Community : Bienestar Hispanic Health Fair (May 21, 2006)
Posted by admin on 2006/5/22 11:30:00 (1255 reads)

Resized Image Resized Image Resized Image

This past Sunday, May 21, Bienestar, a service of Santa Maria Community Services, organized a Hispanic Health Fair at the Price Hills Community Center. Many Hispanics were able to take advantage of this event to check on the health of their children, as well as of themselves. The health checks included dental, vision, blood pressure, and others. Many of the local community organizations, such as Red Cross, were there to assist and educate the attendees on health issues.

Unfortunately, it seems like the recent immigration raids created a fear of in community, and many of the Hispanics stayed away, resulting in less visitors than in previous years.

Our thanks go to all the volunteers, especially the medical staff, who offered their free time to help the Hispanic community!

Community : Latina becomes "Miss A World A'Fair 2006" in Dayton
Posted by admin on 2006/5/22 11:30:00 (1180 reads)

Maria Gabriela Medina, originally from Panama, became the "Miss A World A'Fair 2006".

Resized Image

Maria Gabriela came to the U.S. from Panama in 1989 at the age of 2. In her first years in the U.S. she lived in a community of graduate students where everybody was exposed to many different cultures and languages. Despite the fact that most of her studies have been in the English language, she has learned and conserved the Spanish language, the Panamanian culture, and the Hispanic traditions. She has traveled back to Panama to visit her family several times in recent years.

Dayton's "World A'Fair" festival is a celebration of diversity that showcases the food, dancing, music, costumes, and cultural exhibits representing the ethnic backgrounds and cultures of Dayton and the greater Miami Valley.

Community : Malik Spencer performing at Aronoff Center (June 2-3)
Posted by admin on 2006/5/18 11:00:00 (1698 reads)

Resized Image

Local Salsero extraordinaire, Malik Spencer, will be performing June 2 and 3, 2006 in a show at the Aronoff Center:

http://www.cincinnatiarts.org/tickets/detail.php?event_id=488

This dance with a cast of 26 people, will be a journey into the culture in Pre-Inquisition Spain where the Hebrew, Moorish (Arabic), Gypsy and Christian Spanish communities interacted. Using four magnificent choral and orchestral, musical gems by Bonia Shur, the dancers will exalt the quiet beauty within these cultures during times of tolerance during the 11th to 14th centuries and passionately celebrate the hope that this will happen again.

The capes and tabards worn by the dancers will become medieval cave temples, tree roots, wedding canopies, clouds and stars and symbols of the three religions, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.
