We're taking a step back to do a survey of what's happening across the community. We'll introduce you to an artist that maybe you don't know, hang out with some Cuban drummers, meet high school teachers on the hunt for vaccines, and give a sneak peek of next week's show.

Show Notes:

  • Isabella Gomez Sarmiento's Juan Wauters interview on Weekend Edition
  • Marisa Arbona-Ruiz's Palabra story on high school teachers who have become accidental advocates for equity in this country's vaccine efforts
  • Josee Molavi's short film on Cuban musicians based in Washington, D.C., unable to drum together during the pandemic
  • Aurelio Martinez's virtual songwriting workshop for Garifuna youth

Note: The story about the vaccine hunters and the interview with Josee Molavi are collaborations with palabra, a digital publication of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
