For our latest podcast we interviewed Avivia Chomsky, Professor of History and Coordinator of Latin American Studies at Salem State University. We discussed the history of DACA and the effect that rescinding this policy will have on 800,000 DACA holders, and 10 million undocumented immigrants.
I talk with author and activist Dr. Aviva Chomsky, professor of History and the Coordinator of Latin American, Latino and Caribbean Studies at the Salem State University in Massachusetts. Dr. Chomsky is author of the book UNDOCUMENTED: How Immigration Became Illegal.
We take a look at the Common Ground on the Hill Festival, which is happening this weekend at the Carroll County Farm Museum in Westminster, Maryland. The Festival is a weekend filled with music, dance, arts, crafts, and food, following two weeks of coursework and seminars (“Common Ground Traditions”). This year’s headliners for the Festival are Buckwheat Zydeco, CJ Chenier and Little Queenie. We speak with Walt Michael, Founder and Executive Director of Common Ground on the Hill and Artist-in-Residence at McDaniel College.
In addition, we talk with participants of the Green Valley Samaritan project who have been conducting classes at Common Ground over the past two weeks. Green Valley Samaritan is a group of volunteers in Arizona who go out into the desert to provide water for and assist migrants trying to cross the border from Mexico to the U.S. With us to talk about the work of Green Valley Samaritans are co-Founders Rev. Randy Mayer and Shura Wallin, and musician Pablo Peregrina.
