Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The Center Mexican American Studies (CMAS) at the University of Texas at Austin is hosting Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations beginning Sept. 15 through Oct. 6.
Kicking off the event on Sept. 15 is a talk with John Quiñones, broadcast journalist and host of What Would You Do?, titled “From the Barrio to Network Television: The Power of Never taking ‘No’ for an Answer.”
“As Hispanic Heritage Month is an important way to recognize publicly the many contributions of Mexican Americans and other Latinos to the United States, the Center for Mexican American Studies warmly invites the campus and greater Austin communities to this series of educational and fun events,” said CMAS Director Dr. John Moran Gonzalez.
All events will be held on the UT campus. You can click the dates for more information:
