It’s National Hispanic Heritage Month! We’re kicking it off with some Impolite Conversation! Lezli chats with Dr. Katie L. Acosta, Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at Georgia State University. They explore historical periods of whitening in Latin America (mejorar la raza/”improve the race”), who isn’t included in Latinidad, Zoe Saldana, the policing of Blackness, and what gets lost in translation.
