Buen Hombre Magnificent Mujer Podcast featuring Tish Lampert

This weeks Magnificent Mujer is Tish Lampert, photojournalist, writer & host of “America Speaks”, author of We Protest: Protecting The America We Believe In, Rizzoli Books.

Check out Enrique Morone’s interview with Tish on www.buenhombre.org and www.magnificentmujer.org.

In her new book, “We PROTEST: Fighting for What We Believe In” (Rizzoli), photojournalist Tish Lampert captures the spirit of the heroes and ordinary citizens on their activist journey to defend their American values during the most conflicted era in our recent history. The book charts the chronology of social-change movements that have dominated the headlines over the past several years: the fight for women’s rights and gender equality, immigration rights, civil liberties, gun violence, and the environment. Lampert takes us to the front lines of activism, where she has documented each protest and their respective leaders, as well as the legions of ordinary Americans standing together to protect the values of our great nation.

Lampert, based in L.A., began her work in the 70’s with a focus on human rights issues. She has chronicled protest movements that have been catalysts for reform in America for 20 years. She covered the 1992 riots in Los Angeles; the Cesar Chavez movement for migrant worker’s rights; the Navajo Nation in Tuba City and Window Rock, among others. Her “in the field” investigations include assignments for: Conflict Awareness Project, Voices of African Mothers, Gente Unida, and Border Angels, to name a few. She has won awards for her work in Sub-Sahara Africa and has exhibited in the United Nations, Photo LA and elsewhere. For five years she served as media director and photographer for Voices of African Mothers at the United Nations. Lampert is also the creator and host of the podcast, “America Speaks,” which gives voice to today’s heroes on the front-lines of fighting for social change. www.tishlampert.org.

This week we have a “Buen Hombre” like no other: Mario Torero, Chicano muralist, artist, and just a great humanitarian

This is Enrique Morones from GenteUnida.net, BuenHombre.org and MagnificentMujer.org podcasts. This week we have a “Buen Hombre” like no other, an “Art-ivist”, and a person very well known in certain circles, but who should be known in all circles, all the way from the great country of Peru, but who has has spent most of his life in San Diego, California, my good friend, Mario Torero.

Mario Torero is a very well known Chicano muralist, artist, and just a great humanitarian. Some of his best works as far as murals in San Diego and Southern California are: “The Eyes of Picasso” painted, then demolished when the buildings, whose walls they graced disappeared then reappearing again all over San Diego County during the last 4 decades… And perhaps the most well known in the media is the “I’m Not A Minority” mural in Los Angeles. You also might be familiar with his painting of Cesar Chavez, or his iconic Chicano Park murals.

Over the last 50 years he has been bringing his passion for “Art-ivism” and the Chicano Art movement all over California, to other cities in the United States and even in travels abroad to join other Artivist causes in Peru, Mexico, Germany, the Czech Republic, Japan, China, Cuba, Spain and more to come in the future.  Most recently I joined him in Berlin for the thirtieth anniversary of the

Fall of the Berlin Wall last November, where he shared the story of the Chicano Art Movement and the Chicano Park Community Revolution with audiences there alongside myself and two other local Chicano Activists, artist/muralist Enrique Chiu, and artist/architect Adrian Luz.

If you have never heard this name, or if Mario is an old friend of yours, I equally hope that you share my wonder in this “Art-ivists” entertaining adventures and his never ending quest to explore himself, his world and to push past boundaries in possibilities, and meaning, beyond any borders.

Like me, and our listeners, he is driven by his love of all people, Patchamama (the Earth) and a great passion for life and hope.  We hope this passion touches your hearts today.

Mario Torero has been a supporter of Gente Unida since our inception.

A portion of profits from all purchases of Chicano Park Day posters from past years will be donated to the Chicano Park Museum.

And what an auspicious day. César Chavez day is an American federal commemorative holiday, César Chavez day is an American federal commemorative holiday observed every year on March 31. It is a state holiday in 10 states, such as California, Arizona and Colorado, where schools and state offices are closed, and people get the day off work.

This day celebrates the birthday and work of civil rights and labor movement leader César Chávez. Hugo Castro is a courageous humanitarian who has worked for decades to protect the lives and well being of migrants on both sides of the US Border. He has worked in shelters in Tijuana, and has been a guide, friend and advocate for many in their times of need. Hugo is an American Citizen born to migrant farm working parents. Hugo’s life was greatly influenced by the lives and work of Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta. It is fitting that this interview that allows us to take a look at his many accomplishments and trials falls on this day.
