Mexican Women Tell Their Story In: Las Rebeldes - Stories of Strength and Struggle

A new exhibit called… Las Rebeldes”… or “The Rebels”… opened this weekend at a new museum in Southwest Detroit. Members of the Mexican Community established… El Museo Del Norte to preserve the legacy and history of Detroit’s Mexican community. The Museum is currently in a house on West Grand Boulevard.

One of the museum’s founding members is Maria Cotera, a Professor in American Culture and Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan. She spoke to WDET’s Martina Guzmán about the importance of communities telling their own story.
