NPR hosts special broadcast on Ringside Seat to a Revolution!

Ringside Seat featured in the Texas Observer
Listen to David on

David Dorado Romo, like the people he writes about in Ringside Seat to a Revolution, is a fronterizo. He grew up knowing both sides of the Rio Grande as his home. As a cultural activist in the 1990s, he felt the shadows of the Revolution in the streets and barrios of El Paso and Juárez, the cities where he grew up. He began a passionate four-year search through the archives of Mexico and the U.S. looking for the history that casts those shadows. The stories he tells reveal an intellectual renaissance born of conflict, a revelation of the fronterizo spirit that is so essential in understanding the U.S.-Mexico Border region.

Romo, the son of Mexican immigrants, is an essayist, historian, translator, and musician. He has studied at the Centro d’Attivitá Musicale in Florence, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and received a degree in Judaic Studies from Stanford University.
