These are the poetry, musical, & other presentations at the “In Lak’ech. I am you” celebration of solidarity last Saturday in McAllen, Texas which I participated in. Not all of the performances are recorded here.
One of my petty antipathies in life is speakers who are ill-prepared, which I am in this presentation on solidarity. But let it be a lesson to myself & others to always think out & organize comments in advance.
Thank you to Monica Ramirez, artist, writer, organizer, for coordinating this wonderful event & to the musicians & poets, including Priscilla Celina Suarez, the Poet Laureate of McAllen.
Like most political events here, it was bilingual Spanish & English, as is the area on the US border with Mexico.
