Luis Reyes, a film historian, archivist and author of “Hispanics in Hollywood,” will be the guest speaker.

Admission is free and parking is complimentary; visit the parking kiosk off University Parkway for information.

The exhibit, which opened April 30 and runs through May 17, highlights the history, achievements and participation of Latinos in the Hollywood film industry from its beginnings through the present.

More than 60 rare (many never previously published or exhibited) photographs illustrate the history of not only the actors and extras, but also the behind-the-scenes personnel such as producers, writers and directors.

The exhibit is sponsored by CSUSB’s John M. Pfau Library, The Latinos in Hollywood Organizing Committee, the Black Voice Foundation and state Assemblywoman Cheryl R. Brown of the 47th Assembly District.
