    “Si realmente quieres hacer un amigo, ve a su casa  y come con él . . . La gente  que te da su comida te da su corazón” Cesar Chávez

Platillos como empanadas, pupusas y humitas son pasadas de generación en generación entre familias y culturas.  Exploremos las historias detrás de estas recetas tradicionales y la cultura que reflejan en nuestro próximo conversatorio, Nuestras Voces: Platos Tradicionales

We salute these ebony citizens of Idaho!” Dr. Mamie Oliver, Idaho Ebony: The Afro-American Presence in Idaho State History.

    As the first African American professor at Boise State University in 1972, the author of Idaho Ebony: The Afro-American Presence in Idaho State History, and the instigator for adding the St. Paul Baptist Church to the National Register of Historic Places, Dr. Mamie Oliver’s contributions to the retention of Black Idahoan history are vast and prominent.
