LatiNegr@s Project: TV Interview

Last month in February I was asked to speak on the LatiNegr@s Project regarding our goals, missions and objectives for the TV show Independent Sources which focuses on ethnic media.

The TV interview is up and is part of a larger discussion about Afr@-Latin@s. You may view the show here and below I've provided the overview from the website:

Independent Sources: The Black/Brown Divide

Episode: 216 Taped: 03/03/2010 Running Time: 0:30

A weekly television series about New York's ethnic, independent and community media

On this edition of Independent Sources, we examine the economic crisis in Puerto Rico. Will the job cuts and overall economic turmoil in that country lead to a massive migration to the mainland? We also focus on Afro Latinos and their conversation about race color and ethnicity. Is there really and black and brown divide in the community?
