Syracuse’s First Latino Cultural Center La Casita Featured in Syracuse Post-Standard

Bea Gonzalez at La Casita


It took nearly three years of effort to produce this evening’’s grand opening of La Casita Cultural Center, but for some at the celebration the path stretched back years further.

“It’s been the dream of many of us for a long time,” said Bea Gonzalez, who grew up and received her earliest education on the Near West Side, the home of La Casita, which showcases Latino cultural.

Gonzalez is now dean of Syracuse University’s University College. When she was a child, there was nothing close to a Latino cultural center in Syrcuse. Her parents came here from Puerto Rico in the 1950s, when she was three years old, and they were among the city’s first Latino families.
