I sat down with Dr. Trudy Holmes-Caines before leaving Lincoln, Neb., and had a wonderful conversation for this podcast. She is a professor of psychology at Union College who came to the United States to pursue graduate studies. We discussed her life in Jamaica and how language plays a role in one’s identity, as well as how the immigrant cultures differ from the culture in their respective countries of origin.
It’s been a while. We are bringing you some new conversations soon. But this time, we are re-releasing our episode with Claudia Pech. Back in December, we talked about Trump’s comments on Mexicans, the difficulties of being an undocumented immigrant, and the state of the conversation surrounding immigration.
After listening to a lecture by Sonia Nazario (Pullitzer Prize winner) on immigration for the E. N. Thompson Forum on World Issues at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I decided to re-release this episode and go buy her bestselling book, “Enrique’s Journey.”
After a busy month, I am back with another episode. This time, Claudia Pech is on the show to discuss immigration. We talked about Trump’s comments, the difficulties of being an undocumented immigrant, and the current state of the conversation surrounding immigration. Also, Claudia told me her immigration story.
