KLRN will premiere Children of the Revolución, at the Guadalupe Theater on Friday, January 14, at 6:30 pm. The premiere will be a sampling of the 20-part documentary series which tells the stories of families who fled Mexico and came to Texas to escape the Mexican Revolution beginning 100 years ago. This exodus jump-started today’s Latinization of Texas and America’s Southwest. The free event will include a reception before the screening and is sponsored by BudLight.

KLRN will televise the shows throughout the year every Thursday evening at 8:30 pm beginning January 20th as the “Children of the Revolución” continue to tell the stories of their ancestors who risked it all to make this journey. With an introduction by Kathy and Lionel Sosa, the multi-part series includes conversations with some of San Antonio’s most influential figures including Congressman Charlie Gonzalez, former city manager Alex Briseno, Emmy Award winning journalist Patti Elizondo, cultural anthropologist Tomas Ybarra Frausto, MacArthur Fellow Sandra Cisneros, former mayor Henry Cisneros and his mom, and Elvira, Notre Dame professor Virgilio Elizondo and UTSA President Ricardo Romo. Each episode highlights the stories of families who have made a positive impact in Texas and in San Antonio. The series was produced in association with Jesus Ramirez, Alejandro Maya and Jorge Conde at MyStory.
