THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: RICARDO ROMO ON DOLORES HUERTA, ALFREDO SANTOS ON JULIÁN CASTRO, JOSÉ E. MURATTI ON AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME, AND LUIS J. RODRIGUEZ’S PLAY ALWAYS RUNNING.
Hola Latinopians! This week we welcome a new regular blogger to Latinopia, Dr. Ricardo Romo, whose monthly blog will be known as Romo de Tejas. In this initiating blog he recalls the 70 year struggle for justice and equality waged by farm worker union activist Dolores Huerta. Check out his, “Dolores – 70 Years of Struggle.”
Also this week, another Tejano regular blogger Alfredo Santos delivers his monthly Mis Pensamientos from his regular column in La Voz newspapers. This month he looks at Julian Castro’s national campaign for the Presidency. Even though he admits Julian’s run is a long shot, Alfredo points out what it is still so significant and historic.
Our regular blogger from Puerto Rico, Jose E. Muratti Toro returns with his Utopias Descifrdas ( Deciphered Utopias) blog. This week he looks at the recent historic events that played out this summer in Puerto Rico which culminated in the ouster of Governor Ricky Roselló and wonders if we are not on the brink of an idea whose time has come.
This week a new play, Always Running, by author Luis J. Rodríguez and based on his memoir opens at the Casa 0101 Theater in Boyle Heights. We post Luis Rodríguez reading from his memoir in this Latinopia video. The play Always Running runs Friday and Saturdays through October 20th.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
