Join the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at 325 Cooper Street for live-streamed conference sessions and discussions. This session features both Latinos in Heritage Conservation and The Ball and Chain: The Heart(beat) and Soul of Little Havana.

  • Hear Sehila Mota Casper, the first executive director of Latinos in Heritage Conservation (LHC), share how the organization is re-imagining a historic preservation movement that elevates Latinx heritage, people, and places. Join this plenary to celebrate the organization’s successes and how you can support the LHC’s efforts to affirm Latinx heritage and promote Latinx leadership and engagement in historic preservation. 
  • The National Trust will explore the “world famous” Ball & Chain, the hippest, most lively bar on Little Havana’s famed Calle Ocho, through the lens of food, beverage (read signature cocktails) and the vision of owner Bill Fuller. With live music, dancers, a Pineapple Stage, great Cuban cuisine and drinks, the Ball and Chain truly is the heart and soul of Little Havana, a designated National Treasure! Sponsored by Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, Office of Historic Preservation.
