Raza Si, Migra No
On this episode I chat with University of Minnesota Chicano Studies Prof. Jimmy Patino on his new book Raza Si Migra No the book is primarily about the san diego Chicano Activist response to the formation of the border patrol. And its also a book that is over 300 pages so its much more then that. Take a listen and as Jimmy and I wax poetic about the state, being chicano,and power Of specific interest to me is this lost of history of Chicano radical poliitics. If you are enegaged at all in chicano history I think you will find this book to be nourishing.

Chaun Webster - GeNtry!fication
Poet and graphic designer Chaun Webster draws from an interest in the work of sign in graffiti, the layering of collage, and the visuality of text. These methods are used in Webster’s work to investigate race – specifically the instability of blackness and black subjectivities, geography, memory, and the body. Correspondingly much of these investigations engage the question of absence, how to archive what is missing from the landscape particularly as a number of communities watch in real time, neighborhoods once populated with familiar presences, dissolve in the vernacular of redevelopment and its attendant colonial logic.

Twin Cities' own rap 'hellion,' Manchita (GRRRL PRTY, Tha Clerb), recently released her debut sola project, One, with Minneapolis-based producer-performer-composer, Bionik (Aaliyah, R. Kelly, Lizzo). Though Bionik is known for his danceable, in-your-face, pulsing, electronic bass music, the EPs production showcases an unexpected moodiness, tenderness, and an attention to subtlety that is made visible and is amplified by the gritty content of Manchitas words, and her whispy falsetto. As a whole, the project reveals a more introspective, heavy-hearted body of work centered on love, loss, and survival.

Hoy hablamos con un artista local de Minneapolis, Gustavo Lira, quien ha pintado muchos murales en las Ciudades Gemelas, incluyendo uno aqui en Centro Tyrone Guzman. Aunque empezó como una entrevista sobre el, en poco tiempo el enfoque era sobre nosotros. Su arte habla de justicia y en eso pide nuestras perspectivas. Nos preguntó sobre que es justo para nuestra comunidad. ¿Qué debe cambiar para nuestra comunidad? Finalmente la pregunta mas fuerte era sobre que quisieramos decir a Presidente Trump si hubiera la oportunidad. Fue un placer hablar con Gustavo Lira, y agradecimos mucho su presencia.

Cuicani Music Collective
The word “Cuicani” is a Nahuatl word that means “Singer.” We chose this name because we felt it evoked the importance of exercising one’s voice, and also of giving a voice to the voiceless. Established in 2012, Cuicani’s eclectic mix of members reflects the diversity of the city it calls home. In our three years together we have written and recorded over 15 original songs with themes such as: environmental justice, immigration rights, and protesting police brutality
