Taking the Revolución to The Guadalupe

On January 20, 2011, in This just in!, by admin

Friday the 14th of January was the date for the premiere of the new season of the KLRN documentary series The Children of the Revolucion. The screening was held at the beautifully renovated Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center.

A full capacity audience witnessed history as they saw the telling of the story of the last 100 years of Texas… A story that was altered by the tumultuous Mexican Revolution that led Mexicans to flee to the United States for a better life. The episode screened Friday was the story of the Munguia/Cisneros family as told by Henry Cisneros and his mom Elvira Cisneros. Previews of future shows were also screened including the stories of Rose Catacalos, Alex and Lucille Briseño, and Patti Elizondo.

Afterwards, a discussion was held about these previously untold stories. Toi Montelongo posted on the Children of the Revolucion site, “This was an eye-opener for me… These stories will help others understand how our Latino culture began in the city and how so many of our ancestors worked to ensure a bigger and better future for all Latinos.
