THE LATIN HEAT STORY, LOVE IN THE TIME OF ALBINO, LATIN JAZZ, IS TEXAS THE NEW CALIFORNIA AND MORE THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA.
What up righteously rockin’ Latinopians? It’s your Tia Tenopia here with another week of Latinopia fun. In our videos this week we offer Part Two of the Latin Heat Story–how Bel Hernandez and her colleagues at Latin Heat used the digital magazine to springboard an on-line talk show with a Latina point of view and how this led to their broadcast talk show HOLA LA. Check it out!
Also this week, we offer another independently produced film out of Texas by the dynamic duo, Gabriel Carmona and Branden Selman. This film is particularly poignant, you may want to have a hankie nearby, it’s a tender love story, “Love in the Time of Albino.” You won’t want to miss this film.
Our long time Latinopia collaborator Sara Inés Calderón returns with her blog THINKING LATINA WITH SARA INÉS CALDERÓN. This week she compares the current struggles being waged in Texas by Latinos to what Latinos were doing in California in the 90s. As usual, a thoughtful blog from Sara Inés well worth reading.
Also this week, Don Felípe returns with his blog, BRAVO ROAD WITH DON FELÍPE. Tia Tenopia is blown away by this multi-talented pioneer scholar and founder of Chicano Studies in Texas. In this week’s blog we discover that in his long and illustrious career, besides rising to the rank of major in the Air Force, he has also been a jazz musician performing in the United States and Europe! Wow, is there anything this guy can’t do? Don’t miss his reflections on Latin Jazz.
And another great photo in ANGELA’S PHOTO OF THE WEEK and in this week’s ZOMBIE MEX DIARIES Pearl gets recruited for a dangerous mission.
Enjoy this week on Latinopia and tells your friends!
