Alvaro Huerta Ph.D. on Latinx immigration with art by Salomón Huerta
Alvaro Huerta, Ph.D. on Latinx immigration with art by Salomón Huerta, M.F.A.
This book talk represents a collaboration of Alvaro Huerta, Ph.D., and his brother Salomón Huerta, M.F.A., (critically acclaimed artist), where they combined their creative and scholarly efforts (text, art) to defend and humanize Latinx people based on the book Defending Latina/o Immigrant Communities: The Xenophobic Era of Trump and Beyond. Using his academic training, public policy knowledge, and community activist background, as well as his personal and familial experiences as the son of Mexican immigrants, Dr. Huerta makes relatable los de abajo/those on the bottom. The text is accompanied by Salomón's brilliant art, where it also investigates intersectional issues related to race, class, place, and state violence.
