This week’s Captions: Nuestro Nueva York

This episode, we examine Latino USA’s hometown, New York City. Maria Hinojosa sits down with New York City council speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, one of a few Latinas to rise in city politics. We hear about wage theft in the foodservice industry and a forgotten icon of the LGBTQ rights movement. A street is named after Puerto Rican activists The Young Lords. We look at the legacy and future of Fania Records, pioneers of salsa. And Latino USA goes looking for New York’s best taco.

 

ABOUT CAPTIONING:
Latino USA, the foremost Latino voice in public media and the longest running Latino-focused program on radio, is the first radio program to commence equal-access distribution via Captioning for Radio. “Research has shown that Latino children have a higher incidence of hearing loss and deafness than other populations,” according to Latino USA’s Anchor & Executive Producer Maria Hinojosa. “When the opportunity to break this sound barrier came to our attention, we were pleased to embrace this new technology developed by NPR Labs and Towson University for the thousands of Latinos with serious hearing loss.”
The International Center for Accessible Radio Technology (ICART), a strategic alliance between NPR and Towson University, is co-directed by Mike Starling of NPR and Ellyn Sheffield of Towson University.
