Teatro Chicana: A Collective Memoir and Selected Plays

By Laura E. Garcia, Sandra M. Gutierrez, and Felicitas Nuñez
Foreword by Yolanda Broyles-Gonzalez

Disponible en Inglés, solamente. | Available in English, only.

Speakers for a New America:

The 1970s and 1980s saw the awakening of social awareness and political activism in Mexican-American communities. In San Diego, a group of Chicana women participated in a political theatre group whose plays addressed social, gender, and political issues of the working class and the Chicano Movement. In this collective memoir, seventeen women who were a part of Teatro de las Chicanas (later known as Teatro Laboral and Teatro Raíces) come together to share why they joined the theatre and how it transformed their lives. Teatro Chicana tells the story of this troupe through chapters featuring the history and present-day story of each of the main actors and writers, as well as excerpts from the group’s materials and seven of their original short scripts.

Black Fire: The Making of an American Revolutionary

By Nelson Peery

Disponible en Inglés, solamente. | Available in English, only.

New Press:

Available in paperback for the first time, Black Fire is a personal account of one soldier’s  political awakening. In prose the Washington Post hailed as “Wolfean or Whitmanesque,” Peery writes eloquently of the passions that led him to fight abroad for opportunities denied him at home.

Whether describing his childhood in rural Minnesota, the people and places he encounters as a teenage adventurer on freight trains heading west, or his tour of duty as a soldier in the all-black 83rd Infantry Division, Peery’s is “a deftly told story about a young man’s political and social consciousness” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Black Radical: The Education of an American Revolutionary

by Nelson Peery

Disponible en Inglés, solamente. | Available in English, only.

New Press:

Black Fire, the celebrated first volume of Nelson Peery’s riveting autobiography, told the story of his childhood and teenage years during the Depression and his subsequent political awakening as a soldier in the all-black 93rd Infantry Division in World War II.

In this electrifying sequel, Peery picks up where Black Fire ends, beginning with his integration back into civilian life following the war, and describing the development of his revolutionary consciousness as he attempts to move from first-class soldier to first-class civilian. Black Radical offers a rare perspective and a new and fascinating vantage on the crucial historical period from 1946 through 1968, including the postwar grassroots struggle for equality and democracy led by black veterans, the battles of the black left and revolutionaries during the McCarthy inquisition and their role in the freedom movement, and the 1965 Watts rebellion in Los Angeles, where Peery and his family were living at the time. Above all, Black Radical is about the education of an American revolutionary amid the continuing struggles to bring to life the ideals that Peery and so many others fought for in World War II.

The Future Is Up to Us – A revolutionary talking politics with the American people

By Nelson Peery

Disponible en Inglés, solamente. | Available in English, only.

Speakers for a New America:

Following the publication of his seminal Black Fire: The Making Of An American Revolutionary, in 1994, Peery, with almost 60 years in the ‘movement’ behind him, crossed the country meeting with individuals and groups, talking and listening. In these journeys he discussed questions about capitalism, communism, and fascism; about poverty in the midst of plenty; about what makes our era different from all others. This lively new work distills these experiences and challenges readers to ask new questions and imagine a cooperative America no longer limited by scarcity.
