La Raza Chronicles continues to honor African heritage month with Afro-Latino music. We also offer news headlines from the Americas, a ride through the "Streets of Aztlan" and a calendar of local cultural events. Musicologist guest, Petra Rivera discusses the history of Reggeton. Guest, former Argentine political prisoner, Olga Talmante, shares vital information about the Chicana/Latina foundation scholarships. We'll hear prize-winning poet Francisco Alarcon's latest eco-poetry and the famed Mexican grito that is both laughing and crying. Produced by Vanessa Bohm, Julieta Kusnir, Carmen Andrea Rivera, Ventura Longoria, Amelia Gonzalez and Nina Serrano.
