On this episode, the LMC explores both the exploitation and the perseverance of baseball in the Dominican Republic by spending the hour with Rob Ruck. He is a professor of History at the University of Pittsburgh and the author of, “Raceball: How the Major Leagues Colonized the Black and Latin Game.”
For too long, the immigration debate has been centered exclusively on the Latino community in the US. At the same time, millions of Southeast Asians have been left out of the conversation. So the LMC speaks with Kham Moua on the struggle for Southeast Asian immigrant rights and the importance of Asian/Latino unity against racism & xenophobia. Kham Moua is the Immigration Policy Advocate for the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC).
In part 3 of our Undocumented and LGBTQ series, the LMC spends the hour with Trans activist Jennicet Gutierrez to discuss the case of Roxsana Hernandez plus more. She is also the community organizer and advocate for Familia TQLM in Los Angeles.
