Poet and novelist Javier Avila's one-man show "The Trouble With My Name" blends storytelling, comedy and poetry to shed light on the American Latino experience. It is at once a history lesson on Hispanic heritage, an examination of discrimination in America, a celebration of Puerto Rican culture, and an open platform for a continued conversation about equity, diversity and inclusion. Part of Multicultural Education Week activities, the show will explore the value of diversity, equity and inclusion in our day-to-day lives.
