If you’re from the South, you know that Nuestra Gente have been written out of the history books. So we took it upon ourselves to bring you the history we were not taught in school.
The Nuestro South podcast debuted in 2019. Now, we’re back with new ingredients. Our stories feature illustrations by North Carolina artist, Antonio Alanis on our Youtube video episode. Our hosts Bryan, Daisy, Dorian, and Axel invite you to share in a rich conversation about growing up Latina/o/x in the South. You know the flavor. Welcome to Nuestro South, Refried!
On this episode our Nuestro South we discuss the story of Braceros in Arkansas during a period of time with Jim Crow segregation across the South. Our hosts explore the various ways our communities continue to face discrimination but also how we as individuals and communities confront it head on to build strength and power in unlikely spaces.
