The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Hispanic Heritage Month events will feature the inspirational activist and actress America Ferrera as part of the activities from September 15 through October 15.
The free lecture will be Wednesday, October 5 at 7:00 PM and is open to the public with seating as available at the Alys Stephens Center Jemison Hall. The lecture is presented by the UAB Vice Provost for Student and Faculty Success, UAB Student Life, UAB Lecture Series, and UAB Manos Juntas.
America Ferrera has received an Emmy for her role as the titular character on the ABC hit comedy Ugly Betty and a Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Award for her role in the movie Real Women Have Curves. She also has played featured roles in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Lords of Dogtown, and How to Train Your Dragon, and starred in and executive produced 2010 drama The Dry Land.
Off-screen, she serves as an artist ambassador for Save the Children, and in 2010 she received the Hispanic Heritage Foundation’s Inspira Award for her contributions as a role model. Her most recent on-screen appearance has been as herself in PBS film Half the Sky, traveling to India with New York Times columnist Nicolas Kristof to explore the trails of women as they struggle for opportunity and equality.
