Hispanic Heritage Month Forum

Filed under Cultural, Events on September 21, 2015.

Forum is proud to present “HHM Habla: Alzando Nuestras Voces, Raising Our Voices”. The purpose of the event is to spark a healthy dialogue about the Latinx identity, highlight the hardships of those who fully embrace it and to showcase the competitive edge that comes from owning one’s roots and identities.

Forum will be at the Ustler Hall atrium on Tuesday, September 22, and doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Our keynote speaker is someone who holds all of these values and is always at work to showcase the Latinx identity. Alberto Ferreras is the creator and director for “Habla,” a 13-part documentary series created for HBO Latino. “Habla” encapsulates more than 300 testimonials of celebrities and every-day Latinxs such as Gina Rodriguez, Soledad O’Brien, Junot Diaz and Carlos Ponce.
