Roadrunners and community members are invited to attend events celebrating the 2022 Richard T. and Virginia Castro Distinguished Visiting Professorship on October 11, 2022.

This year’s theme of “De-Gentrification:  Recuperando Nuestra Comunidad, Historias de Resiliencia” features a community panel and keynote address by 2022 Richard T. and Virginia M. Castro Distinguished Visiting Professor Ernesto Quiñonez.

“You can’t help but succumb to Quiñonez’s funny, rapid-fire prose and his uncanny gift for dialect. The author’s dead-on renderings of verbal tics and rhythms fit seamlessly into his depiction of the vibrant culture of East Harlem.” —Amazon Book Reviews
