Over the past decade, North Carolina has undoubtedly grown. According to the 2020 census, North Carolina is now the 9th largest state in the nation, with around 10.7 million people. That population growth has also brought with it significant economic growth. But increasingly, our state's growth, both in population and economic terms, is wildly uneven in ways that belie how much of North Carolina is struggling to keep up.
With the aim of helping to preserve and expand our traditions and culture, the first celebration of the national holidays and commemoration of the Independence of Mexico was held in Louisburg, North Carolina.
This civic cultural community event also had as an emphasis the dissemination of the traditional dance groups of the peoples of Mexico that exist in this area of North Carolina since, as is known, Mexico is one of the countries with the most cultural richness in the world. and Mexican migrants keep their deep-rooted roots crossing borders.
