Hispanic Heritage Celebration Featuring Michael Reyes: October 13

Posted: October 12, 2016

Renowned playwright and poet Michael Reyes will deliver the keynote address, “Mexican/Chicano Identity and History through Spoken Word,” on Thursday, October 13, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. in Bulger Communication Center West as part of the annual Hispanic Heritage Month celebration at Buffalo State.

As a motivational speaker and poet, Reyes is known for his ability to combine history, current events, and performance into a fusion of education and entertainment. His work acknowledges both the negative conditions in which many Latino youth find themselves in and transforms those experiences into positive images of motivation. Through spoken word and through many of his workshops, he challenges students to critically examine their world. By using his words as a tool for discussion and creativity, his hope is that young people come away with an inspiration to consciously create art and become active agents of change in their community.

Reyes has been featured on HBO, CNN, National Public Radio, among many other appearances.

This event is sponsored by the Buffalo State Equity and Campus Diversity Office, Student Life, and Adelante Estudiantes Latinos (AEL).
