Ariana traveled to North Carolina this week to interview Alma, who has contributed to the LMP’s New Roots/Nuevas Raíces Latino Oral Histories and traveled to Guanajuato in spring 2016 with APPLES Global Course Guanajuato.
This interview will be featured in a new Smithsonian exhibit called Unconventional Gateways, which investigates Latino immigration and migration in Washington, D.C.; Maryland; and North Carolina. The exhibit will open in December 2016.
