Host Armando Rendon and Assistant Editor Scott Russell Duncan, speak with Sci-fi writer Frank Lechuga on his work and Latino Sci-fi.
Frank S. Lechuga, born in Los Angeles, California, is a veteran of the early Chicano Movement. As a young man he attended the historic Crusade for Justice’s National Youth Conference in Denver, Colorado, in 1969 and participated in numerous demonstrations throughout the early ‘70s. One of the student-founders of the Chicano/a Studies Department at California State University, Northridge, he has also been an English teacher and university counselor. Frank studied Hwarang Do, the martial art that figures centrally in his sci-fi novel, LOM, under his brother, Master Instructor Jesse Lechuga, who still teaches martial arts.
