Public media organization PRX and independent journalism organization Futuro Media are expanding their partnership through podcasting, the two companies announced.
Maria and Julio are joined by Julissa Arce, immigration rights advocate and author of the new book “You Sound Like A White Girl: The Case for Rejecting Assimilation.” They discuss the issues of assimilation in the United States and the complexities of Latino identity. They also get into the history of racism against Latinos in this country, and why it’s important to learn that history.
This episode was mixed by Leah Shaw Dameron.
