Imagining Latinidades

At the conclusion of the Imagining Latinidades “Cultural Citizenships and Popular Belonging” Symposium held virtually as Episode 19 of this podcast, co-host and co-director of the Sawyer Seminar, Darrel Wanzer-Serrano sits down with the three invited guests to discuss their paths in the field. Questions included: What’s your Latina/o/x Studies origin story? What does Latina/o/x Studies offer your scholarship that disciplinary perspectives/methods might not? What’s the value of Latina/o/x Studies to students and higher ed institutions? What’s the value of Latina/o/x Studies to communities outside of academia? What’s your message to a Latina/o/x listener at a PWI? Check out the chapter markers if you want to skip to a specific question or answer. ★ Thanks to our sponsors ★ The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s generous support through its Sawyer Seminar program allowed “Imagining Latinidades: Articulations of National Belonging” to launch at the University of Iowa. This podcast was born from the Sawyer Seminar and we hope it will continue on afterward. The Obermann Center for Advanced Studies, at Iowa, was the birthplace of our Seminar theme, which gave rise to this podcast.

Adrian Burgos, Jr., “Cuban Star: How One Negro-League Owner Changed the Face of Baseball” (Hill and Wang, 2011)

New Books in History

The integration of baseball is most often cast in terms of black and white, but biographer Adrian Burgos, Jr.— a professor at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign– is out to change that. In his new biography, entitled Cuban Star: How One Negro-League Owner Changed the Face of Baseball (Hill and Wang, 2011), Burgos explores the nuances of baseball’s color line through the story of the Negro League owner, Alex Pompez.The son of a Cuban father and a “mulatto” mother, Pompez, a black Latino, was an influential force in the integration of Negro League baseball and, by extension, the Major Leagues. Importing talent from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Mexico and the Dominican Republic for his Cuban Stars, he assembled the most racially diverse team within the Negro League.An outrageously successful entrepreneur, Pompez overcame the two primary problems facing Negro League owners: a lack of capital and a lack of stadiums. Using the money earned through his Harlem numbers racket, Pompez both financed the Cuban Stars and purchased the Dykeman Oval in which they played.As Burgos writes in Cuban Star, “Pompez was a trailblazer who over the span of seven decades–from his Negro League days through his major-league scouting work–opened pathways for talent from once-insignificant baseball territories.” In recognizing and importing Latin American talent and supporting players as they transitioned to life in the U.S., Pompez had a lasting impact on the face of major league baseball. His influence is still visible in the names gracing rosters today. Learn more about your ad choices.
