THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: DOCUMENTS OF LATINO HISTORY, LATINOS IN THE NEW SOUTH, GAZA & CENTRAL AMERICAN CHILDREN AND MORE!
Hola Latinopians! Don’t know how many of you are aware of our Latinopia Documents feature? These are historic documents from events and people in Latino history. Your Tia Tenopia thought we’d post a few of these to remind you what you will find on Latinopia. So check out the Declaration of Independence, the Cesar Chavez’s 1966 Plan De Delano, the 1969 Plan De Aztlán, and A Brief History of Chicanos in the U.S. To access other documents go to “History” on the top menu bar and scroll down to “Documents,” Watch for new documents that will be added from time to time in the future.
Also this week Eduardo Díaz, Director of the Smithsonian Latino Center, shares with us the presence being made by Latinos in what is becoming the “New South.” Check out Eduardo’s Mirándolo Bien blog. And in the Tales Of Torres blog, Luis Torres returns with insights on the parallels between the children of Gaza and of the immigrant children along the U.S. Mexico border. See also Angela Ortiz’s new Photo of the Week “Cycad.”
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
