 Join the Center for Multicultural Student Services and College of Arts & Letters in celebrating Latinx Heritage Month at JMU with speaker and performer Olmeca! Thursday, Sept 23, at Forbes Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 pm. Olmeca is a Hip-Hop artist, producer, activist and scholar who has been featured on BBC London, Complex Magazine, Noisey, Huffington Post, NPR, Democracy Now and CNN Latino. His music has been featured on various documentaries including PBS “Independent Lens”, and “Two Americans,” a documentary about the immigration issues in Arizona. Olmeca grew up in the barrios of L.A. and Mexico, a reality that brewed his blending of music genres and cultural sensitivity. While everyday people respect his lyrical content, music connoisseurs value the production, and educators utilize Olmeca’s music in their classrooms.
