The Trouble with My Name with Javier Avila (Diversity Index # 8784) Reminder

Tue. Oct 13, 2020 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Online (Zoom)

Beloved educator and artist Javier Ávila, the first Latino to be named Pennsylvania's Professor of the Year, will be visiting HCC with his smash hit one-man show “The Trouble with My Name," which sheds light on the American Latino experience with a blend of satire and poetry. It is a tour-de-force that will make audiences laugh, cry, and embrace the autobiographical journey of a man who moves between cultures to provide a fascinating perspective of American Latinos who struggle to dispel misconceptions about their identity and place in the world. The Trouble with My Name examines the issues of language, race, and social justice in an eye-opening performance where Ávila engages the audience as he tells the story of his life and reads poetry that illustrates what it means to be the American of the future.
