Dr. Cynthia Orozco, an award-winning and best-selling author, historian, consultant and public speaker, is coming to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga for the University’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.
Pablo Mazariegos, who immigrated to America at age 11 in 1992 to join his parents, will screen his documentary “Un Nuevo Pasado (Someday Soon)” on Tuesday, Oct. 3. The screening, which takes place beginning at 6 p.m. in the UTC Fine Arts Center’s Roland Hayes Concert Hall, will also include a session with Mazariegos fielding questions from the audience.
On the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga campus, events, activities and educational programs occur throughout Hispanic Heritage Month to promote a deeper understanding and appreciation of the diverse cultures and backgrounds of Hispanic and Latino communities.
From Sept. 15 through Oct. 15, Hispanic Heritage Month is about recognizing and appreciating the harmony of a culture that has historically had a profound impact on America—and to discover the people who have contributed to this legacy.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs has a lot going on this month. Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, join the Parade of Flags, and help plan events for Black History Month with free food and live music.
