Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Poetry. Fiction. Latino/Latina Stuides. One of the most famous leaders of the Chicano civil rights movement, Rodolfo Corky Gonzales was a multifaceted and charismatic, bigger-than-life hero who inspired his followers not only by taking direct political action but also by making eloquent speeches, writing incisive essays, and creating the kind of socially engaged poetry and drama that could be communicated easily through the barrios of Aztl"n, populated by Chicanos in the United States. In MESSAGE TO AZTLAN, Dr. Antonio Esquibel, Professor Emeritus of Metropolitan State College of Denver, has compiled the first collection of Gonzales' diverse writings: the original I Am Joaqun (1967), along with a new Spanish translation, seven major speeches (1968-78); two plays, The Revolutionist and A Cross for Malcovio (1966-67); various poems written during the 1970s and a selection of letters. Foreword by Rodolfo F. Acuna.
