Mexico City cultural entrepreneur Gerardo Juarez “Bola” will discuss “Preserving Local Culture in the Global Economy: Finding Stories that Make Us Proud and Playing Them Out in the Stage of Globalization” at Fresno State from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, in the Kremen Education building (Room 172). Juarez left a successful law practice to focus his efforts toward reshaping the narrative of what it means to be Mexican in the world today. He will discuss his work to transform superhero fiction by bringing one of the foremost heroes of Mexican Lucha Libre, El Santo, onto the Hollywood big screen. El Santo is portrayed as a real-life superhero who fights in the ring every week against agents of evil. This free, public event is presented by the Anthropology and Sociology departments at Fresno State. Parking is $3 for a day permit, available at dispensers on Maple Avenue.
