Dancing With the Sun: The Artwork of Manuel Hernandez Trujillo
This book is a grand showcase of the late Manuel Hernandez’s art, the story of how he helped restore a stolen culture during the Chicano Movement, and the resonating legacy he leaves behind as an artist, activist, and educator. A film adaption by documentarian Jacov Velasco is in the works and we would take this opportunity to discuss the art and themes of the book as well as to promote the film.
