REFLECTIONS ON REGIMES.

I took the time to reflect upon modern day human brutality that is beyond physical violences such as regimes that often silence human beings.

When 33 yearsContinue reading “REFLECTIONS ON REGIMES.”

MLB WORLD SERIES 2021!

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.

CHAPTER 13 | SUMMARY!

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. Puerto Rican, Cuban and Spanish migration to New York led to the creation of the idea of Hispanidad, that aimed to create a shared Latin American cultural heritage.
