Mujeres Poderosas: The Legacy of Strong Latinas in Fort Worth

Friday, March 4, thru Friday, March 31, at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, presented by the Fort Worth Human Relations Commission in partnership with the Hispanic Women's Network of Texas Fort Worth Chapter and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The museum is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission to this exhibit is free, but admission is required to access other museum exhibits.

Celebrate the important role women play in society by exploring the cultural and societal experiences that have influenced the strength and tenacity of 12 Fort Worth Latinas.

The exhibit is part of Latino Americans: 500 Years of History, which supports the American public's exploration of the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have helped shape the United States over the last five centuries and who have become, with more than 50 million people, the country's largest minority group. The cornerstone of the project is the six-part documentary film Latino Americans, created for PBS in 2013. The award-winning series chronicles Latinos in the United States from the 16th century to present day.
