Leonardo Dorantes Lecture

The Leonardo Dorantes Memorial Lecture was established in memory of a beloved second-year Santa Barbara City College student and Mexican immigrant, Leonardo Dorantes. Touted as incredibly motivated and respected, Leonardo died in a race-related tragedy in November, 1990. The Lecture Series was then installed in 1991 by the SBCC Foundation, designed to heighten the understanding of racial and ethnic differences and shared commonalities in Santa Barbara.
