From Midvale to Mexico and Back
Keywords:Casa Aztlán, Becario, Chicano Movement
From Mexico to Midvale and Back, is the story of the amazing journey as a result of being selected for the Becas Para Aztlán program in August 1979. I tell of where I grew up, the events that took me from a boy without goals after high school to graduate school and beyond. The wonderful people I met, who became friends and remain friends. This is the story of a young Chicano whose family was in this country when the Pilgrims were the illegal aliens. The story of an amazing family who did not always understand my choices but was always supportive.
