Each year, Monmouth University observes National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of those whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. Join the Hispanic Heritage Month Planning Committee for our month-long virtual event series including critical dialogues, performances, scholarship, and speakers including legendary labor rights organizer and feminist activist Dolores Huerta (president and founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation).
This three-session virtual course provides attendees with a multimedia introduction to popular music's history and various forms. Students will enjoy engaging, wide-ranging discussion about the soundtrack of our lives and its past, present, and future. Instructor: Ken Womack, Monmouth University Professor of English and Popular Music, as well as the author of numerous books about the Beatles.
Ian Lara is really just a regular guy from Queens, New York. He started Comedy right after college because he didn't feel like going to Law School and he's loved every second of it. Usually you can catch him performing every night in some of the best and worse shows in New York City, or he's on the road at a club or college near you. Ian Lara will probably be a household name but really all he wants is to get big enough where he can wear those big hats Pharrel wears to awards shows.
