Feb. 24 - UNCW Presents: Jose Vargas

Monday, February 17, 2014

Centro Hispano and the Honors College are co-sponsoring a presentation by Jose Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, at 7 p.m. on Feb. 24 in the Burney Center. Vargas is a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, former lecturer at Georgetown University and an undocumented immigrant. At age 16, Vargas discovered he was an undocumented immigrant and, despite his immense success as a journalist, he kept his immigration status a secret until recently. Vargas seeks to elevate the conversation about immigration and challenge notions of what defines "American."
