SBMA Parallel Stories presenters Mike Wallace, an American Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, and Carmen Boullosa, an acclaimed Mexican novelist, co-wrote A Narco History: How the United States and Mexico Jointly Created the "Mexican Drug War".  In it they review the interlocking 20th-century histories that produced this 21st-century calamity, and propose how to end it. In a time when border discussions and the stories behind the drug trade inundate both pop culture and the daily news, this conversation and reading provides a portrait of corruption, loss, and shared blame; a portrait not unlike that in David Alfaro Siqueiros' mural Portrait of Mexico Today, that graces SBMA's front steps.
