FMU to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist
FLORENCE – Francis Marion University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs along with the Multicultural Advisory Board will host their annual Hispanic Heritage Month program Thursday, Sept. 23 at 4 p.m. in Lowrimore Auditorium.
This year’s guest speaker is Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Jose’ Galvez.
For more than 40 years, Galvez has documented the everyday lives of Latinos around the United States. A visionary, his work has garnered the highest acclaim. Galvez’s personal story is as compelling as his photographs. Born into the Mexican barrios of Tucson, Galvez had a determination to work hard and move beyond what others had decided would be his future. And yet, he has never forgotten his roots.
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated nationally from mid-September to mid-October to recognize the contributions of Hispanic Americans to the United States and to celebrate Hispanic heritage and culture.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information about the program, contact Daphne Carter, assistant dean of students, at (843) 661-1188 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
