That is, there was explicit rhetoric around the desire to retake the southwestern part of the United States, pointing back to the historical land mass called Atzlan
Influenced, even as he critiques them, by Chicano/a nationalist writings on the dreamed and desired recuperability of an Atzlan
home within the territory of the southwest United States, De Genova insists on making Mexican Chicago his subject, following his informants in largely eschewing "Mexican American" as a term and seeing the Mexican character not just of enclaves but of the whole city.

Evening co-hosts are Jose Diez Balart and Gloria Calzada from Telemundo's morning show, Esta Manana and award presenters include Thais Araujo, star of Xica and Emiliano Diez, star of Los Beltran.
