Tonight’s show: Education

It’s not taught in schools but the history of the Mexican Revolution is the history of Texas too. Join us tonight and find out how you are connected to the Mexican Revolution.


The story of the Cortez family and their Mi Tierra restaurant is just not a story about Tex- Mex Cuisine. It is a story about how the Mexican revolution 100 years ago provided the ingredients that created the taste and style of the Mexican-American cultural movement. This episode highlights the similarities between Emiliano Zapata and Mi Tierra and how the revolutionary spirit would become the mantra for the Cortez family and their restaurant. Included is the story of how the Cortez family saved “Market Square” the San Antonio cultural icon from destruction during the “urban renewal” movement of the ’60’s. Deborah Cortez, Mike Cortez, Jennifer Speed, and Jorge Cortez take us on a deliciously multi-sensorial tour of a legendary destination.


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.
