"The Trouble with My Name"

Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM) events at Georgia Tech celebrate and recognize the economic, scientific, cultural, and social contributions of Latinos in the United States. OHI advises a student committee to coordinate efforts with several Hispanic/Latino student organizations in organizing the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration from mid-September to mid-October.

A humor-filled one-man show by by award-winning English professor, Javier Avila that embraces 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. It examines the issues of language, race, and social justice in an eye-opening performance that breaks barriers and embraces the diversity of a nation whose history is rich and colorful. No registration is required.
