In Their Own Words

This audio podcast was produced by the spring 2010 student researchers on immigration, Dan Demeules, Kerry Spence, and Veronica Cordova. Their project was created as a service learning tool in collaboration with the Center for Public Service, the Stone Center for Latin American Studies’ Latin American Resource Center, and Professor Annabella España-Nájera. This project entitled, “In their Own Words” traces seven Latin American immigrants’ experiences living in New Orleans. The podcast uncovers common reasons many living in Latin America choose to migrate to the United States and New Orleans, LA in particular.
