Hola my Peeps! Lots this week on Latinopia! We start with acclaimed photographer Luis C. Garza on the amazing new exhibit at the Autry Museum of the American West, La Raza. This astounding exhibit of photos culled from 25,000 archival photos taken by photographers of La Raza Magazine from 1967 to 1977 is not to be missed. The exhibit is up through February of 2019, so no excuses! Here, Luis explains the exhibit and why it is so important and historic.
Our regular blogger Don Felípe de Ortego returns with an amazing story of cold war espionage and high stakes nuclear chess of which he was an integral part. Check out how he helped create a back-up for the US efforts to counter Russia’s nuclear program back in the day. Really incredible stuff and quite amazing to know there was a Chicano involved in all of it. Don’t miss this article.
Dr. Alvaro Huerta has had it with Trump and his racist comments about “Sh–hole” countries. Dr. Huerta visits the issues surrounding the DACA debate and Trump’s undying efforts to build the wall and points out what responsible Democrats should be doing to counter Trump’s stupidities. Please read on!
And don’t miss Jose M. Umpierre’s third Trailer for his film Bancarrota, which offers possible avenues for a positive Puerto Rican future.
