Episode 5: The Xicanx Question

We are excited to announce that we will be dedicating the next few shows to investigating “The Xicanx Question”.

On this episode, we are joined by special guest Cesar Montero, an LA-based comrade to discuss the origins of Chicanism@/Xicanismx, what Xicanismx means to us, what experiences have shaped and informed the definitions of our Xicanx identities and whether or not we think Xicanismx is experiencing a renaissance.

Listen in and sound off in the comments, in our DMs or via email with your tho(ught)s, comments, questions etc.
