Soccer Everyday: Community Building through soccer in the Georgia Suburbs
*It’s Nuestro South, con el mismo sazón, but some new voices. Join our new storytellers from across the US south as they explore how and where they found comunidad while growing up in the US South. *
This next stage of Nuestro South expands beyond the experiences of our initial hosts and brings in the perspectives of storytellers from rural NC, urban and suburban Georgia, and northwest Arkansas. Our new storytellers Tania, Jonathan, Allison, & Nancy invite you to share in a rich conversation about growing up Latina/o/x in the South. You know the flavor. Check out some of the new voices from Nuestro South!
*In our first episode, Tania shares a rundown of growing up going to soccer games with her dad, her brother, or as a family. We break down how in hindsight, these were some of the critical spaces where we could gather and share food, stories, and moments of joy. If you didn’t play soccer, you could at least count on finding el paletero or elotero! *
