Actor and community activist Edward James Olmos will present “We’re All in the Same Gang” at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Central Washington University’s McConnell Auditorium. His appearance at CWU originally was scheduled for earlier this month.
A passionate speaker on diversity, Olmos tells audiences how he survived the notorious East Los Angeles barrio and succeeded by making his own choices, according to a CWU news release. Emphasizing the need for all races to work together, Olmos explains how diversity in society works to everyone’s advantage.
Olmos’ presentation is part of CWU’s Performing Arts and Speaker Series. For information about the series or to purchase tickets, go to www.cwu.edu/president/series. Tickets are $15 for general admission. (READ MORE…)
