Actor, author, activist Olmos to appear at NMU Sunday

Actor, author and activist Edward James Olmos will give a presentation at Northern Michigan University on Sunday, Oct. 1. He will deliver his speech, "We're all in the same gang," at 2 p.m. in the Great Lakes Rooms of the University Center. A question-and-answer period will follow. The public is invited to attend free of charge.

Olmos was originally slated to visit NMU during the Uniting Neighbors in the Experience of Diversity conference held Sept. 17-19. Scheduling conflicts associated with his directing duties on Battlestar Gallactica delayed his appearance.

As an award-winning actor, Olmos has appeared in several films, including "Stand and Deliver," and on television in "Miami Vice" and "Battlestar Galactica."

The revised schedule for his appearance coincides with the university's involvement in "One Book, One Community" -- a program aimed at bringing people of all ages together by reading and discussing the same book. The campus and Marquette communities are encouraged to read "The Tortilla Curtain," by T.C. Boyle, an account of immigration in central California.
