A quick reminder that we have a guest next class, Victoria Bouloubasis from North Carolina. Victoria was recently nominated for a James Beard Local Impact journalism award for these stories: “What Do Lakewood Residents Think of Their Neighborhood’s Newest High-End Restaurant?”; “ ‘La Comida’ Makes for a Big Family Meal at Mothers & Sons”; and “The Restaurant Industry Depends on Immigrants. What Happens If We Lose Them?”
We’ve seen some of her work in the documentary above. Below, here are some works she shared that you should read before next class.
Also for context about Latinxs in North Carolina, here are some demographic material about Latinxs in the South from the Pew.
