Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer to speak, present work at TCC

If you don't have plans on Friday night, you do now. Jose Galvez, the first Mexican American Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer is coming to TCC to speak and display his photo exhibit, "Somos Mismos, We are All Alike." The photos communicate that people have more in common than they might think. He will talk about his work at 5:30 p.m. Friday in the Cyber Lounge at TCC's Northeast Campus.

"We all share similarities across this great land of ours," Galvez said via email. "We're families, attend celebrations, have faith, are business people and have hope for the future."

As you may have read in my last post, the Hispanic population is booming in Tulsa and TCC. This growth is leading to changes at TCC, including a new class, Hispanic American History. Galvez's visit to TCC is not only to display and talk about his work, but also to support the addition of this new credit class.
