    This Friday, De Anza College will offer students a chance to explore greatness.
The next installment of the visiting speaker series features Rigoberta Menchu Tum, a Nobel Peace Price winner.
    In 1992, Tum received the honor for her work in women’s rights and social reform in her native Guatemala. Tum took up the fight against racism in support of Indian rights in 1981 when she fled to Mexico and became part of the founding of the United Representation of the Guatemalan Opposition.
    The visiting speaker series is presented by the DASB senate and the college.
Tum will speak at 10 a.m. on Nov. 19 in Forum room 4. The event is free and open to the public.
