2019 Academic Symposium

Stayer 205

Faceless, voiceless, and anonymous, immigrants are easy to ignore or to stereotype.  To restore their dignity, their voices, and their agency to the rich human tapestry of cultures in our nation, students of Spa 320 Hispanic Experience in the USA share the immigrants’ own stories. We hear personal testimonies that debunk the myths that overshadow the complexity of the lives of our neighbors, colleagues, students and so many others in our communities. Often at great personal risk, the immigrants speak for themselves in this session.  As they come “out of the shadows” they are emboldened to say “we are here and we are you.”
