Three preeminent figures in the Chicano literary revolution, Lorna Dee Cervantes, San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguía, and California State Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, unite for a poetry reading and in-depth discussion of contemporary issues. The panel will focus on the crisis in ethnic studies, funding in education and the arts, and the unique challenges faced in the publishing world by writers of color. Moderated by Justin Desmangles of the Before Columbus Foundation, the program will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
