Recently, Maria Hinojosa was in the Quad Cities for the Ellwood F. Curtis Family Lectureship at Augustana College. The title of her talk was "Owning Our Power and Our Voice."
During her visit, she took the time to talk with Dr. Christopher Whitt.
Hinojosa is the founder of Futuro Media Group, as well as the anchor and executive producer of NPR's Latino USA and PBS' America By The Numbers. Last year, she launched the podcast "In The Thick."
Whitt was also joined by Tar Macias, president of Hola America, a news outlet based in the Quad Cities that shares stories about the contributions that Latino communities provide to Illinois and Iowa.
