As part of Georgia Tech’s Intercultural Lecture Series, the inaugural Hispanic Heritage Month Lecture will feature Esmeralda Santiago, best-selling author, award-winning screenwriter, and essayist, to discuss the Latinx community within contemporary America.
Presented by Institute Diversity, OHI, and GoSTEM, please join us on October 17 from 3-4:30 p.m. in the Academy of Medicine as Esmeralda Santiago will examine:
- What is the role of activism in the Latinx community today?
- Who are the Latinx voices emerging as activists to help achieve our aspirations for a just and inclusive society?
- What are some of the most pressing issues facing the Latinx community and the nation in the years ahead?
- How can we use art and identity to move the Latinx community forward?
Immediately following the lecture by Esmeralda Santiago, she will sign copies of her groundbreaking memoir, When I Was Puerto Rican, in the lobby of the Academy of Medicine. Copies of her book will be available for purchase.
