Christina Kim Installation at the Brandenburg Gate

Charo on Latino USA

Maria Hinojosa, one our favorite people at KUT Austin has an extended, intimate conversation with the incomparable Charo on her show NPR's Latino USA. Listen here.

"Women Taking to the Streets" , another series of moving stories aired last week, includes interviews with ‘Just Associates,’ a pro-feminist organization active in Mesoamerica, Southeast Asia, and Southern Africa and a moving piece on Esther Chavez Chano, one of the leading voices against the femicide in Juarez.

Since 1993, NPR’s Latino USA has been documenting one of the most incredible transformations of American life and reality—the exploding Latino population and its integration in the a changing America.
