THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: MICKEY MOUSE CELEBRATES MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE (WHAAA?), HISTORY AND ARIZONA POLITICS, ANGELA ROA AND RUBEN MARTÍNEZ AND MORE.
What up Latinopians! This week Luis Torres comments on Mickey and Minnie Mouse being named Grand Marshalls of the East Los Angeles Mexican Independence Day Parade in his regular blog, Tales Of Torres. If all of this sounds “goofy” just check out Luis’s take on these patriotic antics and the history of Disney and the Latino communities. Sal Baldenegro also returns with his Political Salsa y Más blog–this week he reminds us that history matters in politics, especially in his home state of Arizona.
Our highlighted videos this week feature Chilean songstress Angela Roa singing “We Face The Storm,” and writer/performer Ruben Martínez singing the poignant “In the Shadows of Black Mesa.”
Angela Roa returns with her Photo of the Week, this time a stunning photo titled “Morning.” Sergio Hernández brings us another Arnie and Porfi cartoon, this week,”The Barrio Dog Whisperer.”
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
