Tuesday: Michel Martin: Long Way Home at Miami Dade College

NPR journalist Michel Martin will lead a lineup of celebrity panelists during her talk "Long Way Home: Immigrant Stories of Old Roots and New Routes" on Tuesday at Miami Dade College's Koubec Center (2705 SW Third St., Miami). The panel's subject matter should sound familiar to longtime listeners of NPR's "Tell Me More," the minority issues evening program Martin hosted until its cancellation last fall. Modern immigration, cultural legacies and the hope of bright futures within the United States are the focus, and panelists will include "Orange Is the New Black" actress Diane Guerrero, Miami-raised poet Richard Blanco, Miami author Edwidge Danticat, reggae musician Etana and NPR Alt.Latino hosts Felix Contreras and Jasmine Garsd. 7 p.m. $10.
