Distinguished Speaker Series: Edward James Olmos 

When: Tue., Sept. 20, 7 p.m. 2011
Phone: 719/549-2687
Price: Free

We all can remember being blown away by movies with a powerful message. For me, a good example would be Stand and Deliver, a 1988 film about a schoolteacher in a volatile Los Angeles high school. It starred Edward James Olmos, who earned an Academy Award nomination for his stirring performance. The actor-director, also named by Hispanic Magazine as America's most influential Hispanic-American, comes to Pueblo today to deliver a 7 p.m. talk, titled "We're All in the Same Gang," as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series at Colorado State University-Pueblo. If he's as good at the OUC Ballroom (2200 Bonforte Blvd., Pueblo, free admission, as he is on the big screen, it would be well worth the drive. — Ralph Routon
