Dr. Jose Ortega will give an informal talk on "Southern Spain's Moorish Jewish and Christian Heritage" at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 4, at the Virgin Islands Cultural Heritage Institute.
A native of Granada, Spain, Dr. Ortega is a professor of American Civilization at the University of Granada. He has published numerous books and lectured widely on Latin American and Peninsular literature, culture and history.
Spain's Moorish Heritage is of particular interest to the people of the Virgin Islands as many family names can be traced to Spain during the rule of the Moors.
