On this day of May 19th 2022 that celebrates the national hero. Amongst much more Marti was a Cuban nationalist, leader, poet, professor and actively took partContinue reading “VIVA CUBA!!”
As I took the time to reflect upon my previous blog post, I noted that the author Carrie Gibson (2019) had included Ileana Ros-Lehtinen as the first U.S. Cuban-American elected U.S. Congress-woman within her book (2019). In addition as I have been taking the time to learn about the Cuba-America political community, I would likeContinue reading “AMERICA’S AMERICAN-CUBAN POLITICAL COMMUNITY.”

Within this blog post I write a summary of Chapter 16 entitled: “Tucson, Arizona, ca. 1994-2018” from the Book: “EL NORTE.” I combine Gibsons views with my own research endeavours. Topics of discussion include: the School Systems, USMCA (NAFTA), Immigration, Immigration Legislation and Border Spaces.
Within this writing I connect my research endeavours of Hispanic / Spanish heritage with the MLB World Series Championship Tournament. The beauty of research is when we are able to see it come to life with its practical element, thus to create and contribute to the social good of society. It is with these words I offer my congratulations to the Houston Astros for their American League Division Series (ALDS) 2021 win!!! And my good-thoughts to all the teams within the MLB World Series Championship 2021!!! All the best and thank you for our proud baseball history as well as history in the making!!!
Within this writing I reflect to provide a summary of “Chapter 13 New York, ca. 1920s-’60s” from the book entitled “EL NORTE” I found this chapter refreshing to learn of the evolutions and blending of cultural infusions with arts, poetry and dance.

Within this writing I provide a summary of points of interests within this chapter 11 of the book entitled “EL NORTE.” II was particularly interested in the events that led to the Cuban-Spanish war, and that even as war took place the United States was not able to acquire Cuba. The U.S. continued to gain territory with wars. President Roosevelt became philosophical about the act of war. The claiming of territory was known as American Imperialism.
