BLLJ: A conversation with Tony Diaz

Audio only version.

On the show today is Writer, activist, and professor Tony Diaz as we discuss the ramifications of Coronavirus on the black and latino populations. We dive into the Harris County mask order that went into effect last week here in Houston, TX and we look at how Covid-19 has been weaponized to target the Democratic base.

Tony Diaz, El Librotraficante, was the first Chicano to earn an MFA from the University of Houston Creative Writing Program. He wrote the novel THE AZTEC LOVE GOD and is included in HECHO EN TEJAS: The Anthology of Texas Mexican Writers edited by Dagoberto Gilb. His essays have appeared in the Houston Chronicle, Texas Observer, CNN.com, the Los Angeles Times, and Huffington Post Latino Voices, among others. He edited the textbook “The Mexican American Studies Toolkit”.
