Hola mis queridos! I know many of you complain about the lack of Latinos on TV and in cinema. This week, we feature an interview with versatile actress and playwright Evelina Fernández who decided to write and produce her own feature film, Luminarias! And the Alas Media group brings us a new documentary, Wall With a Mission. All going to show that we can and must tell our own stories on the large and small screen.
By the way, I have gotten comments by several of you scholars that you want to utilize the materials on Latinopia for classroom use. Your Tia strongly encourages this! I know some of you wonder about the veracity and scholarship on our timelines, profiles and biographies. If you look at the Research Credits under About Latinopia, you’ll see a listing of the many literary, scholarly, historical and other works which have informed our timelines, articles, interviews and postings. We believe that everything on Latinopia is truthful, verdad de Dios. But if you don’t believe us, well then do your own research, Que no?. No sean flojos! If you have serious concerns about our scholarship, why don’t you have your students fact check anything you have questions about. And if you find anything that’s not correct, well let us know and we will correct it. And congratulations for teaching our children. Education is the most essential thing for the future of La Raza!
In the meantime, enjoy Latinopia and be sure to leave us comments! Con mucho cariño, your Tia Tenopia.
