Rambling down a highway

Latino USA hits the road! Producers Zakiya Gibbons and Jeanne Montalvo, who both grew up in the South, take host Maria Hinojosa on a roadtrip through the heart of the South to learn first-hand what it’s like to be Latino and Southern today, in a special 2-part series. In Part 1, we find out how Latinos helped Atlanta become a world-class city, visit a magical, taco-filled land called Plaza Fiesta, and hear one Latino family’s story of what it was like to navigate the White-Black binary in a small Alabama town.

NOTE: In an earlier version of this episode, Wayne Williams was referred to as white. In fact, he is a black man. In addition, the date that the INS dissolved was referred to as 2013. It is in fact 2003.
