Join Dr. D Ivan Young and his special guest, award-winning writer Tony Diaz, aka El Librotraficante. Tony founded Nuestra Palabra: Latino Writers Having Their Say in 1998.  He is the leader of the Librotraficantes-champions of Freedom of Speech, Intellectual Freedom, and Performance Protest.


Tony wrote the award-winning novel THE AZTEC LOVE GOD as well as his new work THE PROTESTERS HANDBOOK, and also hosts the Nuestra Palabra Radio Program on 90.1 FM KPFT Houston, Texas.


Tony has refined the tactics of the New Era activist-writer to make local, national and international news. Through his work Tony has empowered Mexican-Americans to defend their culture from the classroom to the courtroom. Dr. Young and Tony Diaz discuss the Latin American plight, the need for all races to work together, and the role of literacy in spreading truth. The revolution will not be televised; it will be written. There was Che...now there's Tony!
