CESAR CHAVEZ WEEK ON LATINOPIA!
Hola mis queridos vagabundos! This is the week that we celebrate the birth of a great labor leader, César Chávez. While even Google has seen fit to honor our great Mexican American leader, Latinopia is also paying tribute. We post a collection of dichos by the great leader, “César Chávez in His Own Words,” as well as a new “Moment in Time,” photo taken at the funeral for César Chávez in 1993. Also we reprise an interview with Chicano director of photography and director Rey Villalobos who filmed the 50,000 people that attended the César Chávez funeral. And we haven’t moved the Dolores Huerta video talking about the pivotal UFW march in 1965, “La Peregrinacion.” Check it out if you haven’t already done so.
In addition, we have new blogs by our regulars. Angela Ortiz graces us with a new Photo of the Week–a stunning sunset, artist and cartoonist Sergio Hernández takes a comical Arnie & Porfi look at Easter as it is celebrated in the barrio, Zombie Mex Diaries returns with new revelations about the nether world of zombies in Aztlán (and you thought it was just your neighbors), and our talented and thoughtful Sara Inés Calderón takes a whimsical but thoughtful look at the differences between Texas and California Chicanos in her blog, Thinking Latina with Sara Inés Calderón.
And of course, we have a complete list of cultural doings in major cities in the United States on our April Events.
Check it all out this week on Latinopia!
