A Latino punk rocker dad guides his son to become a DJ--and a good man

I read somewhere that when a man is asked to talk about his life, he usually begins by talking about his father.

So, this week, my blog is sharing the stories of three Latino sons.

We’re all our immigrant fathers’ first born. We’re all in our forties. We’re all fathers. And we all have a different reality from our dads.

The second reflection comes from my Compadre Sergio Hernandez, Jr. Sergio was born to Mexican immigrants and grew up on the north side and in the Western suburbs. Growing up, he expressed his passion for music by DJing. For over twenty years, Sergio has dedicated his professional life to community organizing, teaching, and leadership. He is a father to three sons aged 12, 10, and 8.

Listen to part 1 of this series: A Latino son explains how music, baseball, and late-night TV helped him bond with his Cuban dad.
