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.
