THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: CHRISTINE MARIN’S GUEST BLOG ON JOE SOLETO, RICARDO ROMO ON SAN ANTONIO POLITICS OF THE 1960s, SERGIO HERNANDEZ’S ARNIE AND PORFI ON CHRISTMAS AND
As the end of year gets closer we celebrate Christmas with a guest blog by Arizona-based historian Christine Marin as she reflects on a unique veteran of World War Two, Joe Sotelo. Check out this moving homage.
Ricardo Romo’s Tejano Report this week looks back on the 1960s and the Chicano activism of that period and how it transformed not just San Antonio but all of Texas and the Southwest.
This year we miss once again the spirited and comic vision of the late cartoonist and friend Sergio Hernandez. We honor him with a reprisal of two of his Christmas Arnie and Porfi cartoons. Our dear friend Serg simpre con ganas!
And lastly we know that many of you will be celebrating the holidays not just with tamales but with capirotada! So here’s Diane Velarde Hernandez’s recipe for making this scrumptious holiday dessert.
Wish you all a Feliz Navidad!
