Felipe LucianoWinona State University will host “The Power and Impact of the Young Lords and Today’s Struggle for Identity” with Felipe Luciano at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, in East Hall, Kryzsko Commons.

This keynote address is presented as part of Hispanic Heritage month and is free and open to the public.

Luciano will also present a student workshop, “Pushing and Defining the Voice of the Next Generation,” at 3 p.m. in dining rooms E, F, and G in Kryzsko Commons.

Luciano is a news reporter, anchor, poet writer, activist, and lecturer. He is one of the most dynamic Latino public figures in the United States in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

His passion, vision and eloquence for issues of social justice are extraordinary and reflect courage of a generation that chose to organize, teach and struggle against the powerful institutions of discrimination.

His poetry delivers messages about the spiritual, political and cultural matrix of the Latino and Black American.

The Inclusion and Diversity office, Inclusion and Diversity clubs, and KEAP Center of Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical College will sponsor this event.
