Davis-Undiano’s book  Mestizos Come Home!  wins 2017 International Latino Book Award for “Best Latino Focused Nonfiction Book”

The prize was announced at a ceremony held on Sept. 9 at California State University Dominguez Hills.

Robert Con Davis-Undiano , director of the newly inaugurated Latinx Studies program at OU and series editor for the Chicana and Chicano Vision of the Américas at the University of Oklahoma Press, said he was grateful that this award will amplify the book’s core message--a message about democracy and inclusion that he feels is vital for all Americans.
