THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: BIRTHDAY GIRL DOLORES HUERTA ON THE FARMWORKER’S PEREGRINACION, MELINDA PALACIO’S HOW A FIRE IS A STORY, WAITING. DON FELIPE ON NACCS, GLOBALIZATION, WAR AND TERROR, AND EDUARDO DÍAZ ON GREEK ARCHITECTURE (WHAAA?).
This week we celebrate with farm labor and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta on her 87th birthday with a look at how she helped organize the Peregrinación (pilgrimage) by farm workers to the California state capital in 1965. Happy birthday Dolores! Also this week poet Melinda Palacio reads from her latest poetry collection, How a Fire is a Story, Waiting. Our regular blogger Don Felipe returns with a look at the National Association of Chicano/a Studies and the world they face in a time of globalization, perpetual warfare and terrorist threats. And don’t miss Eduardo Díaz as he reacts to having all our architecture relegated to the Greeks.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
