Last Café Libro of the Season ft. Jorge Renaud

7pm Friday, 19 September 2014

Café Libro Open-Mike Presents Jorge Antonio Renaud

Hosted by Olivia Slusher

This is our last gathering for the immediate future! We have loved having you this summer and hope you’ll join us to close out the show with the fanastic Jorge Antonio Renaud, our feature. As always, we will be ready with snack and warm feelings to hear your words and share an evening with you. Let us know if you have any questions! ******** Jorge Antonio Renaud is a gifted poet and writer who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2012 with an M.S.S.W. He has written extensively about the nexus of minority issues and criminal justice in essays for various journals and op-eds for the Hispanic Link Weekly Report. Jorge is also the author of Behind the walls: A guide for families and friends of Texas prison inmates. He is a frequent guest lecturer on conditions of confinement at both the University of Texas School of Education and the LBJ School of Public Affairs. His interest in criminal justice extends to juvenile justice, and he has facilitated creative writing workshops for at-risk youth as a member of Save Our Youth, and for youth in detention facilities and those certified as adults and incarcerated in the Texas prison system as a member of Sending Solidarity. He is on the board of the Texas Jail Project, as well as a proud member of the Texas Inmate Family Association and of the volunteer cadre at the Inside Books Project, which sends literature to Texas prisoners. As a Texas Criminal Justice Coalition (TCJC) Policy Analyst, Jorge is critical to the research and development of various administrative and legislative policies at both the state and county levels, with a special emphasis on the adult system. Jorge also facilitates TCJC’s inmate correspondence program, addressing concerns and requests for information by inmates and their family members. His work is driven by the belief that American incarceration policies are too punitive and costly, both to human dignity and to limited economic resources, leading to practices that devastate generations and communities. This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future.

Red Salmon Arts Presents

An Indigenous Peoples’ History:  A Reading and Book Signing with Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

Today, in the United States, there are more than five hundred federally recognized indigenous communities and nations comprising nearly three million people. These individuals are the descendants of the once fifteen million people who inhabited this land and are the subject of the latest book by noted historian and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.  In An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, Dunbar-Ortiz challenges the founding myth of the United States and shows how policy against the indigenous peoples was genocidal and imperialist—designed to crush the original inhabitants. Spanning more than three hundred years, this classic bottom-up history significantly reframes how we view our past. Told from the viewpoint of the indigenous, it reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the U.S. empire.

Book Release for Austin’s Montopolis Neighborhood

Dr. Fred L. McGhee will be available to sign copies of his newly released Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America series book  

Montopolis is a multiethnic neighborhood located approximately four miles southeast of downtown Austin. The area was long visited and occasionally occupied by various Texas Indian nations; the first documented European or American to settle here was Jessie C. Tannehill, who in 1830 built a cabin and townsite and gave the new community its pretentious name. Instead of establishing a permanent presence in Montopolis, however, subsequent European colonizers looked a few miles upriver to the new settlement of Waterloo, later to be called Austin. Rural and sparsely populated, the remainder of the 19th century saw the Montopolis area used primarily for plantation agriculture. In the 1920s, succeeding waves of Mexican migrants helped establish the modern neighborhood that exists today. Between the 1950s and 1970s, the City of Austin annexed Montopolis, although the area retains much of its rural character.
