Basic Black: Latino Power & Politics 2016

Arts & Culture | Black Boston | Politics

October 9, 2016

This week on Basic Black...

- Hispanic Heritage Month - as with all the “heritage” months, we ask, does this month have the same relevance/significance as it does when it was conceived and if so, does it need to change for contemporary times?

- The Latino Vote 2016 - as the presidential campaign for 2016 continues momentum, are the candidates and parties engaging and mobilizing the Latino vote? How do we as a country move toward solving the persistent challenge of immigration reform?

 

In this May 10, 2011, file photo audience members listen to President Barack Obama speak about immigration reform at Chamizal National Memorial Park in El Paso, Texas. A year before the 2012 presidential election, Hispanic voters face a choice: continue to support Obama despite being disproportionately hurt by the economic downturn or turn to Republicans at a time when many GOP presidential hopefuls have taken a hard line on immigration.
