by: Chuy Ramirez
Posted: September 13, 2021

Armando Rendon is a former California journalist, chicano activist, novelist, essayist and of late, co-founder of a digital publisher, Rendon spent the first 10 years of his life  growing up in San Antonio’s westside, which serves as a setting for one of his novels.  During the early to mid-1960s, Rendon would have a life-changing experience upon meeting  Cesar Chavez. Chavez was then organizing farmworkers in California. From that time forward, Rendon began identifying as a chicano and developed an affinity with the workers whom Chavez was organizing. Rendon describes the process of assimilation which he went through and would reconsider to re-imagine his identity.  Rendon shares those experiences which many men and women of that generation similarly experienced.

The September 2021 edition of IberoAzltan will be our ninth. We had projected publication of six editions which would be focused primarily on an interview project which we began in 2017, called the Chicana/o Legacy Project. The interest in and support for IberoAztlan was Unexpected.
