THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: SALOMÓN BALDENEGRO ON THE SAN PATRICIOS, SERG HERNÁNDEZ WITH ORIGINAL ART ON THE SAN PATRICIOS, MARK DAY’S SAN PATRICIO BATTALION FILM, ERNIE HOGAN ON AZTEC LEPRECHAUNS AND BOBBI MURRAY’S IRISH SODA BREAD RECIPE.
Hola Latinopians! This week we celebrate all things Irish and specifically the important of the Irish Chicano/Mexico connection. We begin with a thoughtful piece by our regular blogger Salomón Baldenegro on the significance of the Irish/Chicano nexus. Our regular artist and cartoonist in residence Sergio Hernández has created an original and stunning work of art celebrating the San Patricios, and for those of you who don’t know anything about the San Patricios, don’t miss Mark Day’s film clip on the story of the San Patricio Batallion. Acclaimed science fiction author Ernie Hogan, who is himself mitad-mitad, weighs in on being Irish and Mexicano with his guest blog on Aztec Leprechauns. And finally, for those of you who want to taste the fruits of the Chicano/Irish nexus, check out Bobbi Murray’s recipe on making Irish Jalapeno soda bread. Scrumptious and not to be missed!
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
