Children Of Latinia / by Maria Hinojosa | April 4, 2014

Children Of Latinia

Children of Latinia is the story of a young man, mixed-race and caught in between two worlds. Together with his girlfriend, Jocelyn, he creates a motherland for hyphenated-Americans. You can hear the preamble to the constitution of a new America, one that’s stirring all of the good things together.

We begin our first fiction episode with this work by poet Quique Aviles.
