Impacting the Latino Community
The Latino Community hasn't had many artists like Selena. Gone way too soon, the late Tejano Queen continues to be a source of awe and fascination for even the younger generation of Latinos. "There haven't been enough people like her in the Latino community," said Deborah Paredez, author of Selenidad: Selena, Latinos, and the Performance of Memory, "so people continue to turn to her and commemorate her."
