Coordinator: Kevin Downer ( )

Event Details:

Join us for a movie in celebration and in recognition of Hispanic Awareness Month. Roberto Clemente was one of the first Latin Americans to play Major League Baseball, not long after Jackie Robinson broke the sport's color barrier as the first black American player. This is the story of a person who overcame much adversity, to not only become one of baseball's greatest players, but ultimately one of its greatest heroes.

Clemente was and is still revered by the city of Pittsburgh, where he played, and in his home country, Puerto Rico. His selflessness, humanitarianism, faith, and love have been the legacy carried on by his family members. There will be back-to-back showings in Lansdell Hall 111, 3:00 PM and 4:30 PM, so take this opportunity to experience his truly inspirational story.
