Latinx Voices Reflect on American Dirt (Partnership with Project Enye)

Mar 23, 04:11 PM
As distraction to the world-wide pandemic we are living through, we are releasing an episode that was created several weeks ago  before any of us knew how the coronavirus would impact our daily lives.  We take this opportunity to send you love, light, and courage during these hard times.

This episode of Tamarindo is a collaboration with Project Enye. This is a compilation of many #Latinx #podcasters reacting to the #AmericanDirt debacle. American Dirt is the novel released earlier this year that was widely criticized for it's racist portrayal of #Mexicans. Thanks to Mexican-American writer  Myriam Gurba, the controversy behind American Dirt exposed how the publishing industry systematically silences voices from the #Latinx community.  Take a listen and let us know what you think!
