After Arizona passed its controversial racial profiling bill, SB 1070, response across the country was swift. Even poets joined in, including Juan Felipe Herrera with his poem Arizona Green (Manifesto #1070).
In this video, Herrera is joined by poets Michael Medrano and Anita Hernandez in a lively guerrilla reading of the poem at the Latino Book and Family Festival in Los Angeles.

I heart Juan Felipe Herrera! These three look like they’re having a great time: They make me believe the earth is winning. 🙂
