Lebanon Valley College’s fourth annual Hispanic Heritage Celebration, sponsored by the Hispanic Alliance and the Office of Multicultural Affairs, begins Sept. 15 with a dinner provided by Metz Culinary Management in the Mund College Center dining hall. Celebratory programming includes a film series, concert, salsa workshop, panel discussion, networking opportunity, and a concluding “Noche Caribena” event.

The film series begins with a showing of “Real Women Have Curves” on Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. at LVC’s Friendship House. Pizza will be provided. The 2002 film tells the story of a first generation Mexican-American teenager named Ana who is torn between her family’s old-world expectations and her own ambitions to become an educated woman.

Hispanic Heritage Month partners with the Chapel Concert Series to feature award winning Christian recording artist Jaci Velasquez on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. in Miller Chapel. Tickets are $5 for faculty, $11 in advance, and $15 at the door. Admission is free for LVC students.

The First Thursday Latino Networking Event will be held on Oct. 3 at 6 p.m. in Lancaster, Pa. Students who wish to attend should sign up on Redbook.

On Oct. 16, guest speaker Yovanny Severino Polanco, Executive Director of El Centro Cultural Guanin, Inc. in the Dominican Republic, will present on the current state of the Dominican Republic and the needs of the area at 7:30 p.m. in the Tweedie Conference Room in Mund College Center.

Other events include a salsa dancing class, which will be offered Oct. 17 at 6 p.m. in The Underground, and a screening of the documentary “The Dream is Now” on Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. in Miller Chapel. “Noche Caribena,”and evening of food, dancing, and music, will conclude the Hispanic Heritage Celebration on Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. in The Underground.

In September 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed National Hispanic Heritage Week, observed during the week that included Sept. 15 and Sept. 16. The observance was expanded to a month-long celebration in 1988. America celebrates the culture and traditions of those who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. Sept. 15 was selected as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.
