75 Years of the Fulbright Program:Celebrating Educational and Cultural Exchanges between Mexico and the United States
Join us for a lively (Virtual) celebration of Fulbright’s 75th Anniversary and US-Mexico exchange, featuring a Chavela Vargas-inspired performance.
To celebrate 75 Years of the Fulbright Program, the Fulbright Association – Georgia Chapter and the Mexico-United States Commission for Educational and Cultural Exchange (COMEXUS) invite you to join us for an evening of song, poetry, and multimedia presentations. This interactive event will recognize not only the landmark anniversary, but also the vibrant history of the Fulbright Program in Mexico — a longstanding symbol of friendship and collaboration between the U.S. and Mexico.
RSVP here to join in with the festivities alongside the Mexican Consul General to Atlanta, as well as Mexican and U.S. Fulbrighters. Finally, enjoy a compelling feature performance by “docu-cabaret” and storytelling artist Stephanie Trudeau about the life and music of ranchera icon Chavela Vargas. Don’t miss this binational tribute to Fulbright’s rich history and vital present, which remains critical to fostering mutual understanding and communication between Mexico and the U.S. as close allies, partners, and neighbors.
