Hispanic Heritage Month festivities are in full swing. Wednesday, September 20 two outstanding events were held on the OCC Campus.

During College Hour Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez spoke with students in Mawhinney Hall. He writes for Marvel comic books and has his own creative arts studio in Brooklyn. Miranda-Rodriguez is a graduate of Fowler High School whose current project includes a comic book with a female superhero. It’s named “La Borinquena” which translates to Puerto Rican woman. Miranda-Rodriguez is an advocate for Puerto Rico where he once lived. He spoke at OCC as Hurricane Maria was bearing down on the island.

That night Hispanic Heritage Month festivities continued with Salsa Dancing. Members of the campus community took time out of their busy scheduled to celebrate the rich heritage of the Latin culture. Salsa dances were led by instructor Roberto Perez and music was introduced by DJ Maestro.
