LATINOS ON CAMPUS
LATINOS ON CAMPUS 47 minutes, 2010, U.S.
A probing, intimate look at the journey of Latino Students into mainstream American higher education.
The young Latinos featured, speak about their lives as students at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, yet their stories weave a much larger tale: That of families and communities from diverse geographies but a predominantly common placement within the American landscape.
Out of keenly personal evocations, thoughtful reflections, and vibrant interactions, the larger historical, economic and socio-cultural questions radiate not as abstractions but as rich, layered and poignantly lived experience. Implicit in their stories are both the scope and the limits of our society’s challenging process of achieving full integration and equal opportunity to quality education. These young voices bring depth, complexity and grace to that increasingly necessary discussion.
