KUCR DJ/Producer and Radio Aztlán Program Director Roberto Tijerina joins Milagros Peña (Dean of the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences), Concha Rivera (wife of the late former UCR Chancellor Tomás Rivera), and Emily Rankin (Sr. Director of Development, CHASS) to discuss the upcoming annual Tomás Rivera Symposium. The symposium will take place on March 14th and 15th, and includes a dinner featuring keynote speaker Cheech Marin, a panel discussion titled "Latinos and Cultural Appropriation," and a play by the Latino/a Play Project titled “Stand and Deliver.” This interview was recorded in the studios of KUCR 88.3FM.

"The annual Tomás Rivera Symposium, initiated in 1988, honors the legacy of Tomás Rivera by providing an international form for reflection on the contributions of Chicanos and Latinos in the worlds of the arts, literature, creative writing, culture, business, medicine, and education. The Symposium is purposefully cross-disciplinary, bridging the disciplines to highlight and explore the diversity of issues and concerns that are important to the Latino community as well as the community at-large."
