  • REBEL on PBS today, May 24: Loreta Velazquez, American Civil War soldier and spy
    REBEL is the story of Loreta Velazquez, Confederate soldier turned Union spy.

Deftly weaving lush dramatized scenes of Loreta's riveting tale, vivid storytellers, archival material, and animation, this is a film about a woman, a myth and the politics of national memory. Who was Loreta Velazquez? Why did she fight? And what made her so dangerous she was erased from history? I'll air....

  • “Hollywood and Hispanics”
    It was my pleasure to sit back and watch two of my favorite all time movies on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) last night. “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962) followed by “Sahara” with Humphrey Bogart (1943) were the movies. In these spectacular wartime films I rediscovered why Hollywood can show us the way on race and ethnic relations. Specifically, I point to a minor scuffle among some in the Hispanic community over whether or not Hispanics were honored by Ben Afleck in his Academy Award winning “Best Picture “Argo.” Former California State Senator Gloria Romero brought up the subject in an Oran....

    "Cualquiera puede hacer fotografías pero cualquiera no puede ser artista" dice el colombiano Adrián Abonce. Uno de los artistas emergentes de mayor proyección en el ámbito de Filadelfia.

"Es una foto a la antigua con cámara de los 60 en la que intenté plasmar una imagen que trascendiese el tiempo".
