I just watched John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons. Watch it. The language is rough and the talk is raw but the display of rage and how it got into our Latinx DNA is worth the journey.
He is far from boring and the books he pulls from are soon to be delivered to my door. As this blog evolves and content grows, I think that special will come back again and again.
I need to learn my people's History in order to have more than just a family tree on Ancestry to pass on to my girls. I need to explore the trauma in my DNA. Give a voice, remember it, and try to resolve and work my way through it.
