Spend this hour-long conversation with Nina Serrano, whose six decades of art and activism include being the first foreign woman to travel with Fidel Castro and his army, making a teleplay with Roque Dalton, guerrilla fighter and poet laureate of El Salvador, cofounding Mission Cultural Center, staffing the Free Chile Center and SF Poetry in the Schools, and of course, hosting La Raza Chronicles/Cronicas de la Raza and Open Book at KPFA.
Nina is also a widely anthologized poet, mother, grandmother and an award-winning filmmaker. Our conversation also touches on feminism, writing and the Beat scene (she is not now, nor was she ever, a Beat). This show features seldom-heard clips from two of Nina's films.
