Fist In the air: a celebration of social activism through poetry, McAllen, Texas 14th June 2013

A showcase of selected poets who use their work as a tool for social change including

  • Isaac Chavarria
  • Chuck Taylor
  • Jose Chapa V
  • Erika Garza-Johnson
  • Mary Ann Escamilla
  • Cesar de Leon

Celebrate of the role of social activists in changing the world. Hear hear. Since poets are usually at the forefront of revolutions in most Latin American countries (Roque Dalton, Pablo Neruda, Susana Chavez) and around the world, poets should take on that role here in the United States today. Again - go poets!
