You wanna talk about monuments!? Well guess what, Mimi...WE DID! This week FavyFav and Babelito discuss the terrorist attack in Charlottesville through a conversation surrounding the history of monuments and their function in society. From statues of Christopher Columbus in Puerto Rico, to university mascots around the country, monuments preserve a very selective history that must be challenged.

On this occasion, Babelito sat with one of his favorite scholars, Annette Rodríguez from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), to discuss the importance of understanding the history of the lynching of Mexicans in the southwest and the west coast during the late 19th and early 20th century. Annette first discusses the wonders of Hawaiian food and later contextualizes the vocabulary behind “hate crimes” “lynching” and the media we consume that continues to reiterate the invisibility of Mexicans in the long history of U.S. terrorism against our communities.  Do not forget to send us your emails with your questions to asklwlpod@gmail.com (mailto:asklwlpod@gmail.com)   #podsincolor #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #supportlatinxbands #lwlpod

FavyFav and Babelito visit Austin, TX this week and chat with one of their favorite artists, José Villalobos. As a sculptor and performance artist working in Texas and the border, Villalobos has managed to create a body of work that tackles issues of queer identity and erasure without relying on old stereotypes nor  expected old tropes. Instead, Villalobos has dismantled narratives of Latinx identity in the U.S. and has brought to the scene a new and refreshing take on queer aesthetics and politics that are bound to entertain, educate and mesmerize. Listen to this conversation and learn how artists that do not live in the “center” can have amazing careers working from the “peripheries” of the art-world!

This week we are honoring a dear compadre que se nos fue. Ed Fuentes was a cultural journalist and one of the biggest Latinos Who Lunch supporters.

Ed also discusses the perils of being the only Chicano MFA student in a department dominated by white male artists, and the importance that public murals have in the fight for resistance against oppression and gentrification. #podin #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #lwlpod Photo: Leila Navidi
