140402 Ray Suarez - The Latino United States

Juan González, in his classic book, Harvest of Empire, writes, "We are all Americans of the New World, and our most dangerous enemies are not each other, but the great wall of ignorance between us." Sadly, instead of walls coming down, walls are literally going up. The border is militarized. The tens of millions of Latinos in the U.S. represent an enormous diversity from Dominicans to Bolivians and Salvadorans to Chileans. A fundamental social, political and cultural transformation is occurring way beyond barrios and bodegas, JLo and Marc Anthony, La Bamba and La Cucaracha, and nachos and tacos. Latinos are challenging conventional notions about race and ethnicity, labor and capital, education and language, justice and fairness, and our history as a nation of immigrants. How are Latinos changing the U.S. and how is the U.S. changing Latinos?

Ray Suarez was host of NPR's Talk of the Nation. He was chief national correspondent for PBS' NewsHour for many years. He is the host of Inside Story on Al-Jazeera America. He is the author of Latino Americans.
