Thank you San Antonio and gracias to the Instituto Cultural de Mexico and the UNAM  for the wonderful event at the Children of the Revolución Book Signing Event and presentation.

The night itself was a historical milestone for San Antonio that will ramify into a greater cultura conversation in the coming years.

The night began with Azul singing corridos from the Mexican Revolution and delicious flautas, albondigas, guacamole and aguas frescas from Mi Tierra.

A storytelling panel comprised of Henry Cisneros, Ricardo Danel, John Philip Santos, Michael Cortez, Charles Barrett, Neftali Garcia joined Lionel Sosa with some compelling thoughts relating to our cultura’s need to continue to tell the untold stories of our ancestors.

Attendees took pics with the Emmy, Cannes Corporate, New York Film Festival and Telly Awards won by Lionel Sosa’s Children of the Revolución Television Series.

We’ll let you know of any future Children of the Revolución events.
