HAMMOND  -- Joseph Burns, a professor of communication at Southeastern Louisiana University will speak on “Chicano Rock and the Influence of Latino Music on Rock Stars”  on Thursday (March 10) at 2 p.m. on the third floor of Sims Memorial Library.

            Burns is host of KSLU's syndicated show "Rock School.” His lecture will focus on the sounds of East Los Angeles, Southern California and little towns where Latin

rhythms were blended with American rock and roll. Richie Valens, Trini Lopez, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, The Champs, and Santana were all musicians of Latin descent who became wildly successful in American popular music

            Free and open to the public, the lecture is part of the library-sponsored series on Latino Americans. A complete schedule of the entire series along with other information can be found at southeastern/

            “Latino Americans: 500 Years of History” is part of an NEH initiative, “The Common Good: The Humanities in the Public Square.” The programs are funded by a grant from the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  For more information, contact Eric Johnson at Sims Library at 985-549-3962 or via e-mail at
