Tony On TV

Writer, Activist, and Professor
I am a black belt in Rhetorical Anlaysis. I earned a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. And I'm Chicano. There's no Republican who can beat me in a debate. TV is easy. I get to confront Republicans every week on "What's Your Point?" Fox 26 Houston. I also get to shape the American Imagination via other programs. Here are the highlights. More to come. This is our time. 

The Only Chicano on TV

You might find Hispanic journalists-but not nearly-enough, but it is much harder to find Latino political analysts, let alone Chicano pundits. Tony Diaz tells it like it is. And he speaks truth to power.

Tony Diaz, El Librotraficante, was the first Chicano to earn a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Houston Creative Writing Program. In 1998, he founded Nuestra Palabra: Latino Writers Having Their Say to promote Latino literacu and literature.

Diaz made national and international news when he led the Librotraficantes in defying Arizona's ban of Mexican American Studies by leading veteran members of Nuestra Palabra to organize the 2012 Librotraficante Caravan to smuggle books banned in Tucson back into Arizona. He is the lead writer and editor for the textbook "The Mexican American Studies Toolkit". He also is an educational consultant for school districts implementing innovative curriculum. Diaz currently resides in Houston where he continues to fight for Intellectual Freedom and Freedom of Speech.

Diaz is also a political analyst on "What's Your Point" which airs on Fox 26 Houston. He also hosts the weekly bilingual radio program Nuestra Palabra: Latino Writers Having Their Say which covers Latino Literature, Art, and Politics on KPFT 90.1 FM Houston. His essays have appeared in the Houston Chronicle, The Texas Observer, CNN.com, the Los Angeles Times, and The Huffington Post Latino Voices, among other publications. He wrote the novel The Aztec Love God and is included in "Hecho En Tejas: The Anthology of Texas Mexican Writers".
