From illiterate street kid, to world renowned poet, Jimmy Santiago Baca has lived a long and winding path. It was in prison that Baca connected with his Native American and Chicano heritage, and began learning the lessons of his people’s past. On this edition, Progressive Magazine editor Matthew Rothschild sits down with Jimmy Santiago Baca.
Special thanks to the Progressive Magazine.
