Nuestras Escuelas: A Southern Latinx Reflection of our Education & its Possibilities
Play • 34 min

It’s Nuestro South, con el mismo sazón, but with 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 Nancy, Jonathan, Allison, & Tania 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 this episode, Jonathan, our resident badass educator and organizer, walks us through those early experiences as young first or second generation immigrant students in school across the South. As we reflect on what the experience was for us, the failures and opportunities, we also take the time to dream of the possibilities that our future students deserve in order to get a quality and holistic education that values the entirety of their identities and talents.
