This Week’s Captions: Kids!

Today: the lighter and darker sides of childhood. Host Maria Hinojosa speaks to K, who works with detained children who came to the United States without an adult. We examine Latino studies, or lack thereof. We examine the uneven impact of dress code policies. We hear a children’s book read by author Yuyi Morales and about the life of NYC librarian Pura Belpre. Teachers in California write a book in the indigenous Mexican language of Mixteco. And from the mouths of babes comes this week’s sabiduría.

This Week’s Captions: Heartland

THIS WEEKS SHOW:
This week: Nebraska. A state heavily impacted by a growing Latino population. We start with a two-part special report on Fremont, where a one of a kind anti-immigration housing ordinance is causing strife among neighbors. We look at the role of immigrant workers on the Nebraska economy, and debut our By the Numbers segment with award-winning journalist Guy Garcia. We meet teens legally allowed to be in the US but blocked from driving by the state, and meet two great heartland characters: an Irish immigrant teaching English to new Latino arrivals and a Nebraska-born Chicano organizer.

This Week’s Captions: Report Card

THIS WEEKS SHOW:
As the school year winds down, we hand out some grades on our report card show. From the failure of schools to maintain integration, to the effort shown to allow undocumented students in-state tuition. Then, we look at the price paid by one Texas school for trying to graduate former dropouts. First-generation college students graduate. We grade the media for trying to deal with stats correctly. And we hear how TV’s done this year in terms of diverse programs. Finally, producer Daisy Rosario tells Bill Cosby about what he’s done to change her mother’s life.

This Week’s Captions: A Latino History of the U.S.

THIS WEEKS SHOW:
Before you head out for a Cinco de Mayo margarita, take a trip around the country with host Maria Hinojosa to learn about Latino history. Hear about the patriotic celebrations of Laredo, Texas and the first colony in the US—it’s not where you think it is. Also: could Zorro be the first American superhero? A high school class in East LA learns about the Chicano movement. And just where did the term “Hispanic” come from?
