This week In the Studio we're joined by Estevan Azcona, Assistant Professor of Chicana and Chicano Studies at San Jose State University, and co-producer of the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings release, Rolas de Aztlán: Songs of the Chicano Movement.
Drawing on his experience working with arts non-profits, Professor Azcona will discuss how the arts can serve the needs of communities in the creation of programing and resources to tell their story, particularly important for communities of color.
Hosted by CRC Music Professor Lisa Beebe, Professor Azcona will also talk about his work with the documentary film Singing Our Way to Freedom, recently screened at CRC.
This event is co-sponsored by CRC's Puente Project.
