In this program, we interview Ecuadorian immigrant Joselo Lucero, outreach coordinator for the Hagedorn Foundation. Since his brother Marcelo was murdered in a hate crime in 2008, Joselo has been active in community projects to empower youth and instill leadership qualities. He tells us about the 7th anniversary of the death of his brother and how that has influenced his life.
Also with us, members of Estampas Folkloricas Peru, an organization that promotes Peruvian folklore dances in New York and the U.S. and is celebrating its 15th year anniversary. Most of its members are students from colleges, universities and high school, in Nassau, Suffolk and New York City. They tell us about the importance for young people to understand where they come from.
