Steven Maxwell, a professor from Kansas State University stated "Some bands that were less talented but had great visual appeal became more popular," (Maxwell, 2011). The Music Industry was changing due to MTV and its influence. Chenjerai Kumanyika states That “A key component of MTV’s brand identity is a reputation for both irreverent authenticity and cutting-edge entertainment” (Kumanyika, 2011). Soon MTV biggest star was not Madonna or Michael Jackson but it was MTV, regardless of who or what was trending at the time it was the culture or at least where the culture would gather. A key formula to MTV’s success staying the voice of the youth is to constantly reinvent itself for a new generation.
This being he paved the way for the Mexican revolution, this being that he took over Mexico from the Mexicans and that for Spain. Without him the Mexican revolution would have never happened because the Mexicans would have never have to get away from the Spanish rule. To say the least Hernando Cortés was an amazing man that contributed to the world today despite his ruthless way of doing it he.

As Nava states with an interview with Roger Ebert "I think Latinos have always had an innate understanding of the importance of family," Nava told me. "All the great novels from Latin America - One Hundred Years of Solitude, House of Spirits - they're always family stories that take place over generations. I wanted to make a movie in which the family itself is the protagonist.” Nava states that he wants to make a film about Latino family and he did with the films El Norte, Mi Familia, and Selena.

At the beginning of the movie Memo was interested to know what happen on the other side of the border. He wanted to know how people live and know about “trunode” company. For him it was fascinating how the “trunode” company works.

Moreover, before the wall Memo’s father was like the king of the town, he own part of the land in Santa Ana, Mexico, where he could farm all his crops.
The British Invasion occurred in the 1960’s when rock and pop music groups from the United Kingdom became very prominent in the United States. Due to the powerful tones of American rock and roll in the 1950’s, many British youth tried to recreate the image and sound of popular American musicians.

The Invasion brought an end to musical groups that once dominated the American music charts. Authentic rock and roll originated and emerged in the United States during the late 1940’s and early 1950’s.

Touching on these topics and the detailed background allowed me to see the fair was a reflection of American culture, as well as an influence. On opening day, President Grover Cleveland urged an audience of around five hundred thousand fairgoers to “let our hopes and aspirations awaken forces which in all time to come shall influence the welfare, the dignity, and the freedom of mankind.”7 Reading this statement in the beginning led me to believe Badger was promoting the fair as a strong influence on American culture. Badger discusses the constructing the White City in the swamp and its symbolization to bringing order out of chaos and increasing America’s team

Going black hoe he saw that the exploitation has not ended yet, and he thought it was enough. He also started working at the farm, so he could show everyone that he was like them too and that he knows what they are going through. That is how he got them to listen and to join the union, and the connection he had helped him get allies on his side for the movement.
