THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: EDUARDO DÍAZ ON VINCENT VALDEZ AND HIS THE CITY ART PROJECT, ALVARO HUERTA ON SURVIVING A TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, JOSÉ MURATTI: IS IT THE BEGINNING OF THE END? AND THREE THANKSGIVING SIDE DISHES!
This week we finish our assessment of the post-election results with a post by Dr. Alvaro Huerta assuring us that yes, there is life after Trump. But San Juan-based blogger José Muratti, also weight in on the Trump aftermath asking us, Is this the Beginning of the End? Doubtless Latinopia will continue to post reactions and analysis to the Trump election victory and its meaning in the months to come. Also this week, Eduardo Díaz brings us an insightful look at some pretty deep and dark artwork being created by San Antonio based artist Vicente Valdez. Valdez has taken on the legacy of white supremacy and the Klu Klux Klan in a stunning work titled The City I and II. Check out this important and far-reaching work.
And, of course, we are looking at Turkey day later this week. Latinopia thought it’d be fun to post recipes for Mexican side dishes to accompany your Thanksgiving dinner. Check out Diane Velarde Hernández as she brings two recipes from Cocina Hernández; Sopa de Fideo, and “Chile Rellenos.” And long time blogger and chef extraordinaire, Luis R. Torres, regales us with his recipe for scrumpcious “Calabacitas,” all ideal as a Thanksgiving side dishes.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
