Rendon explains his reasons for writing the Chicano Manifesto in 1971, reprinted in 1996, and to updated in late 2021. It was influenced both by his own evolving “chicanismo” and the emerging chicano political program of the 1960s. He touches on his own fictional books, including the Adventures of Noldo, and the publishing house he helped co-found, “Somos En Encrito (www.somosenescrito.com). The publishing house produces multiple genres of latino-oriented writings. IberoAztlan featured and interviewed Martha Zarate, co-author of Our Fathers Were Brothers in its August 2021 edition.
