The Obama Election and the Chicano/Mexicano Community – The Lansing/Michigan Perspective: Greater Mexico Podcast 4, Part 1
In this podcast we examine the effects of the Obama election on the Chicano/Mexicano community in the Greater Lansing and Michigan areas. We are fortunate to interview MSU and Lansing’s very own Ernesto Todd Mireles. Todd is a Ph.D student in American and Chicano/Latino Studies looking at social mobilization strategies in the Americas. Moreover, Todd has been a leading student and community activist, involved in issues ranging from the UFW Grape Boycott to campaign manager to Tony Benavides’ successful mayoral campaign. He is currently reviving the Xicano Development Center, a grassroots organization based in Lansing.
