NPR’s Maria Hinojosa Talks Pilsen, Gentrification and Becoming a Citizen
In an in-depth phone interview with Chicago Voz, Mexican-American journalist Maria Hinojosa opened up about growing up in Chicago and her involvement with Casa Aztlan and Mujeres Latinas en Acción. She reflected on the gentrification of city neighborhoods like Pilsen and her current home, Harlem. Other topics we discussed were media diversity, the Chuy Garcia episode she produced for NPR’s Latino USA, teaching at DePaul University, and her talk at the Chicago Humanities Festival 2015.
