Episode #5 - Las Trailas de NC

6/3/2019
Now we enter the story! Today’s episode is about las trailas. Axel lived in one for a while growing up, and we know many of y’all did too. The trailas we’re talking about in today’s episode were around the corner from middle-class white housing developments near Charlotte in the early 2000s. This is when things started to go south (no pun intended). Not all the white people liked having us in their ‘hood, a strong anti-immigrant movement came here from California, undocumented immigrants...

Episode #4 - Los campos de Georgia

6/3/2019
In the 1960s through 1980s, millions of Latinos started traveling through the South as migrant farmworkers. Daisy has some personal experience with this since she grew up in a rural area and worked in the packing sheds before she became a college student. But the crazy thing is that unlike when we were kids, the South was really not that anti-immigrant back then. The white folks were both conservative and pro-immigrant (we found it hard to picture, too). In today’s episode, we meet Israel...

Episode #3 - Getting help from La Patria (Los braceros de Arkansas)

5/14/2019
Back in the 1950s, hundreds of thousands of Mexican men came to Arkansas to pick cotton, on contracts negotiated by the Mexican and U.S. governments. Today we meet Angel Cano, a licenciado Mexico sent over to protect them from wage theft, discrimination, and other troubles. Señor Cano even had some success, some of the time. It seems crazy to us that these migrantes trusted their patria enough to ask for help all the way from Arkansas. Qué opinas? - This podcast is produced by Ricky Hurtado,...

Episode #2 - Mexicans school Mississippi

5/14/2019
You may think Mississippi was all black and white back in the day, but n’ombre - our gente were there too! Today we meet Rafael Landrove: A Mexican sharecropper in 1920s Mississippi who came from Mexico, called himself Cuban, and fought to send his kids to the white school. Our parents fought for our education in the South, too, but in a different way. What about yours? - This podcast is produced by Ricky Hurtado, Erik Valera, and Julie Weise, with generous sponsorship from the Whiting...

Episode #1 - A time Mexicans lived as Europeans in New Orleans

5/2/2019
Vamos a New Orleans, nearly 100 years ago. Mexican immigrants arrived there by boat. Many, like a man named Robert Canedo, were able to “blend in” to whiteness -- something we couldn’t imagine being able to do today. Or could we? - This podcast is produced by Ricky Hurtado, Erik Valera, and Julie Weise, with generous sponsorship from the Whiting Foundation, the University of Oregon College of Arts and Sciences, and Latinx Ed. Edited by Dorian Gomez. For more information on Mexicanos in New...
