Carlos Andres Gomez visits campus November 5

Richmond College is pleased to bring Carlos Andrés Gómez to campus on November 5, 2019. Carlos is a Columbian American poet, speaker, actor, and author of the newly released Hijito [winner of the Broken River Prize and a #1 SPD bestseller] published by Platypus Press, and the memoir Man Up: Reimagining Modern Manhood. A star of HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, TV One’s Verses and Flow, and Spike Lee’s #1 movie Inside Man with Denzel Washington, you may know him from his viral poems, “Where are you really from?” and “What Latino Looks Like,” which have garnered millions of views online. Carlos recently partnered with John Legend for Senior Orientation, a program to counteract bullying and champion inclusive masculinity among high school students. He’s a proud Latinx and father.

Carlos will be speaking at 7:00 PM in the Robins School of Business’ Ukrop Auditorium. The event is free and open to the University Community, and is part of Richmond College’s Masculinities@Richmond Series.
