THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: JOSÉ UMPIERRE ON “INFORME SOBRE EL DESARROLLO HUMANO,” SOÑIA ROMERO ON THE “URBAN OASIS : MURAL,” MACEO MONTOYA ON “CIELO ROJO,” AND LITTLE JOE HERNÁNDEZ ON THE IMPACT OF CHICANO MUSIC.
What up Latinopians! This week we feature a potpourri of Latinopia videos. We begin with José Umpierre’s third and final installment of his review of the 2016 Informe Sobre el Desarrollo Humano. Having reviewed the stats of Puerto Rico’s history, Umpierre situates the current crisis and the activities of the PROMESA Fiscal Board as the disastrous outcome of years of inept efforts by the United States as it governed the island and its people.
Artist and muralist Soñia Romero explains how she went about creating the awesome and stunning mural “Urban Oasis” on display in the Metro train station at MacArthur Park in Los Angeles. Also Check out author and artist Maceo Montoya’s brilliant work, “Cielo Rojo.” And lastly, famed Texas musical legend Little Joe Hernández reflects on the impact that Chicano music has had on the American landscape.
As always enjoy your week on Latinopia!
