The author Patria Roman-Velazquez is considered an authoritative source for my topic because she has written an article that concentrates on popular music in Spanish.

The article examines the construction of Latino identities and basically an attempt for the author to explain the interrelation between body and music in a specific setting (Roman-Velasquez 115). The main point includes particular Spanish language music is vital to influencing individuals to embodied particular identities.

Thus, CRT will be used as a means to allow Latina/os to express their experiences. Further, CRT scholars would argue that those with minority status have an inherent competence to speak about race and racism (Delgado & Stefancic, 2001; Solórzano and Yosso, 2002). The primary purpose of this study was to advocate for the needs of Latina/o students in higher education, and provide information that could ensure that their needs are being met and that they feel supported in higher education. Thus, CRT will be used as a framework to discuss the continued marginalization of Latina/o students attending higher education and allow for their voices to be understood.

In Latina/o Transpopulations, Marcia Ochoa explores substantial gaps in Latinx transpopulation literature and origin. Ochoa attempts to understand US trans latina/os’ experiences through the notion of populations, which is useful for three reasons.

The Great Migration What I Already Knew and What I Wanted to Know I selected The Great Migration because I already knew some of the information about it, and I was interested in learning more about it and discovering the reasons behind it. I knew that it was a migration of the African Americans from the South to the North, and that they traveled because of unfair treatment and to try to obtain more rights that they didn’t originally have in the South. This topic interested me because I had some recollection of what had happened during the time period of the Great Migration from learning about it in the past and I wanted to learn more about what had happened during it. I was wondering what the economic and cultural effects of The Great Migration
