Celebrating Diversity

In observance of National Hispanic Heritage Month, UMUC invites you on a unique photographic journey led by Pulitzer Prize–winning photographer José Galvez. Galvez combines struggles, triumphs, history, culture, and images to provide informative and compelling insights into the Chicano movement, the impact Hispanics have had on armed service, and Latino life in America.

From the barrios of Tucson to metropolitan newsrooms to naturalization ceremonies, Galvez has committed his life to documenting and sharing Hispanic experiences in America. His photographs, books, and lectures chronicle diversity in the workplace, community, and homelife.

About the speaker

José Galvez, the first Mexican American photographer for the Los Angeles Times, was part of the first Chicano group to win the Pulitzer Prize. He has gone on to preserve the Latino experience in black-and-white photography for more than 40 years.
