The Afro-Latinx Experience Panel

Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM) events at Georgia Tech celebrate and recognize the economic, scientific, cultural, and social contributions of Hispanics and 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.

Afro-Latina/o members of our community will share their personal experiences, ideas, issues, and actions through compelling and inspiring conversations based on themes important to our community. Attendees will learn about the panelists’ experience growing up in their communities as Afro-Latinxs. The conversation will focus on the Afro-Latinx perspective on racial injustice, racism, and colorism, as well as proactive approaches to identify solutions. Identities, challenges, and commonalities between the Hispanic/Latino and African American cultures will be discussed.  Co-hosted by the Office of Hispanic Initiatives and the Hispanics Or Latinos and Allies (HOLA) and Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) Identity Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).
