NKU Latino Programs & Services invite everybody to "A Conversation with José Gálvez"

THURSDAY, SEPT. 27, 2018
1:45 – 3 P.M. // STUDENT UNION, ROOM 107
7 – 8:15 P.M. // STUDENT UNION, ROOM 107

Fourth-generation Mexican American and Tucson, Arizona native, JOSÉ GÁLVEZ , is an accomplished photojournalist who began pursuing his photography interests as a teenager. His passion has always been to capture barrio, familia and moments from everyday life. Since the late 1960s, he has used black and white photography to document Latino life and culture in the United States. As a newspaper reporter with the Los Angeles Times for over 20 years,
he won a Pulitzer Prize in Community Service for a series on the Latino experience in Southern California. José always seeks “to honor the moment.” Doing photography exclusively over the past 40 years, he has created an historical record of the long view of what Latino life has been like across the United States over the decades.

His photographs have been exhibited in countless museums and galleries in the U.S. and abroad, including the Smithsonian Institute. José and his family moved to North Carolina in 2004 where he began photographing Hispanic immigration in the South.

Help the CSO Fight Hunger!

The Friday, April 8 concert is part of Orchestras Feeding America, a national initiative to help fight hunger in the United States. 

One in six neighbors in our Tri-State area is at risk of hunger. In response to this need, the CSO is holding a food drive for Freestore Foodbank on April 8 in conjunction with the concert Latin Passion at Music Hall.

Starting April 4, with a canned food donation, you can purchase a concert ticket to Latin Passion on April 8 for only $10.

Already have a ticket for April 8th? Call the box office at 513.381.3300 to see how you can still participate.

Orchestras Feeding America (OFA), has seen over 450 orchestras from across the country collect and donate nearly 475,000 pounds of food. The efforts of these orchestras have helped spread the word about how and why orchestras are so necessary to their communities, beyond providing amazing music.
