#1431 - ¡Escape! / by Sarah Gonzalez | August 1, 2014

#1431 – ¡Escape!

From the refugee children and families at the border to dancers leaving Cuba, Latino USA looks at stories of escape. A family from Guatemala seeks refuge in San Diego. We hear from a school in Georgia where undocumented students are going because they’re barred from receiving in-state tuition. We visit the fantastic world of comics and examine how readers are pushing diversity through social media. We hear some words of wisdom from Panamanian-American hip-hop artists Los Rakas. And we respond to your feedback about our episode “Blue.”
