Hermanos Flores Magón Plática
Saturday, May 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join the Esperanza Peace & Justice Center and the Westside Preservation Alliance for a plática with Diego Flores Magón, the director of the Casa de El Hijo del Ahuizote in the Centro Histórico of Mexico City.
Join us for a plática with Diego Flores Magón, great-grandson of Enrique Flores Magón and nephew of Ricardo Flores Magón who were prominent journalists/activists/thinkers in the Mexican Revolution of the early 1900s. Exiled from Porfirian Mexico for their revolutionary journalism, the Magón brothers spent time here in San Antonio, where they published some issues of their famed newspaper “Regeneración.” Diego will speak on this period in San Antonio history, as well as his work as director of Casa de El Hijo del Ahuizote in Mexico City, which has conserved and houses the Documentary Archive of Enrique Flores Magón.
