This week I joined @ProfRagsdale for #SaturdaySchool. My co-host for the week was David Villarreal (@DVLonghorn81), a colleague of mine at UT Austin. David is a PhD student in the Department of History working with Dr. Emilio Zamora and Dr. John McKiernan-Gonzalez. David does fascinating work on queer identity within the Mexican American and Latina/o communities.
Our topic this week was La Raza Unida Party & the Latin@ Electorate. Some of the highlights include the resources shared by @Xicano007 and the lively discussion about the importance or non-importance of self-identified terms such as Chican@.
Thank you to all those who joined the conversation. If you missed the live-chat on Saturday we still want your input! Please be sure to add your comments and resources in the comments section below this post because, as always, you’re never late to #SaturdaySchool.
