The descendants of the families who escaped from Mexico during the revolution are often called “Mestizos-” The Mixed Ones or “La Raza Cosmica” The Cosmic Race. Originally, Mexico was made up of separate regions and tribes, a mixture of many races, ethnicities and religious beliefs who originated from the Spanish/Moors and pre-Columbian nomads from Asia. The Mexican Revolution unified the country and created the Mexican psyche. Those who fled to the United States populated the West bringing with them a unique integration of spirit, talent, fortitude and hope.  Father Virgilio Elizondo (author of Mestizo), Tomas Ybarra Frausto, John Phillip Santos, and Jennifer Speed take us on a journey of identity as it unfolded after the events of the Mexican Revolution.
