Javier Ávila: The Trouble With My Name
"The Trouble with My Name" is a one-man show about the Puerto Rican experience in the U.S. With a unique blend of comedy, storytelling, and poetry, Dr. Javier Ávila sheds light on cultural differences, history, racial tension, and issues of representation, social justice, and diversity. It's a show that makes audiences laugh, cry, and think. Come and enjoy this celebrated performance by the first Latino to be named Pennsylvania's Professor of the Year, a proud boricua who was born and raised on the island and who is now a bestselling author and one of the top educators in the country. The event is also a benefit for Puerto Rico.
