April 15, 2009

Tomás Rivera

RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Tomás Rivera was an award-winning author whose stories celebrated the lives of migrant workers, an educator who pressed for instruction informed by language and culture, and an administrator who provided opportunities to those who had historically been excluded from college classrooms and employment.

“It’s been 25 years since his death and we’re still celebrating him,” said Carlos Cortés, professor of history emeritus at the University of California, Riverside.
