Description


My Name Is Romero is the third full-length collection of poetry by Mexican-American poet and spoken word artist David A. Romero. In a world mispronouncing his name, or trying to define it for him, Romero digs through his family history, his childhood memories, and stories of working people, to create his own meaning for his family's name. In the process, Romero challenges his own prejudices as well as those of outsiders, as to what it means to be Mexican-American and Latinx. My Name Is Romero ranges from the political to the personal, with a scope both intimate and epic. My Name Is Romero also includes a discussion guide for conversations around its themes of belonging and exclusion, racism and solidarity. My Name Is Romero features original cover art by Sonia Romero with advance reviews by Gustavo Arellano ( Ask a Mexican and Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America), Curtis Marez (University Babylon and Farm Worker Futurism: Speculative Technologies of Resistance), Ulises Bella (multi-instrumentalist, founding member of Ozomatli), Yolanda Nieves (associate professor at Wilbur Wright College, founder of Vida Bella Ensemble), Mike "The Poet" Sonksen (author of Letters to My City and I Am Alive in Los Angeles), and Ana Maria Alvarez (founding artistic director of CONTRA-TIEMPO urban Latin dance theater company).
