1910 Mexican Revolution Online Class (Free)

UCLA Professor and MacArthur Fellow Kelly Lytle Hernández will be in conversation about her new book Bad Mexicans: Race, Empire, and Revolution in the Borderlands on Monday, June 6th, as part of the Zinn Education Project’s free online class series. Professor Lytle Hernández will be joined by University of Maryland, College Park Associate Professor Nancy Raquel Mirabal, and Director of their U.S. Latina/o Studies Program.
Lytle Hernández will be focusing on the magonistas, a “group of agitators who challenged Mexican dictator Porfirio Díaz in the early 20th century.” The Library of Congress has a collection on “The Mexican Revolution and the United States” which can be found here in both English and Spanish and includes a timeline, an interactive map, audio and videos from the revolution, and more. Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library has a collection of nearly 400 photos and postcards from the Revolution, found here.
