Maria Garcia on the life and legacy of Selena Quintanilla

Maria talks with Jay about the extraordinary woman behind the cultural icon, and why Selena’s star now burns brighter than ever before.

On March 31st, 1995, on the cusp of national stardom, Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla was tragically shot and killed at the age of 23.

26 years later, Journalist Maria Garcia decided to track Selena’s short but impactful journey. Her result was a thought-provoking podcast series called ‘Anything for Selena.’ Named Apple Podcasts’ Show of the Year of 2021, ‘Anything for Selena’ follows Selena through her life as she challenged existing notions of race and body image, eventually becoming one of the ultimate vessels for change in the Latino and Mexican-American community in the United States.

Join us for our first-ever All About Change episode, as Maria examines the woman behind the cultural icon and why Selena’s star burns brighter than ever before.
