BEYOND LA FRONTERA
We heard from award-winning Mexican American writers Jennifer Clement and Luis Alberto Urrea on such relevant issues as immigrant narratives, the epidemic of gun violence, and the xenophobic sentiment facing Mexican immigrants in the United States today. Both authors have a thread of activism woven through their work, Clement through her writing on hidden women and the far-reaching arm of human-trafficking, and Urrea in his stories of the border, a space where narratives have traditionally been overlooked.
This conversation was moderated by award-winning news anchor and reporter Maria Hinojosa.
