It was quite an honor to guest host on Latino USA on NPR for the one and only Maria Hinojosa while she’s been busy conquering the world and being the positive force she wants to see in it. Loved her staff, this week’s theme—MOVE—and interviewing my friend Farai Chideya about our shared passion for traveling. #lovetaps
This week, Latino USA is on the move with guest host Raquel Cepeda. We hear stories of La Bestia, the train which takes Central American migrants through Mexico to the US. We hear about a Salvadoran woman’s story, from a gay migrant, and about those trying to take alternate modes of transport. And we hear about one man who massages the feet of migrants as they journey north. Then: some background on the World Cup, traveling while brown, and doing Zumba for community. And finally, the World War II internment story you might have missed.
