Freshman and ELL host “House on Mango Street” Community Panel Discussion

16 May

On May 11, 2012, our Freshman World Studies students combined with our English Language Learners to host a panel discussion about some of the sensitive issues related to Anglo-Latino relations in our community.  This work grew out of our reading, “House on Mango Street.”  Panelists related their concerns about segregation and distrust and how we can act to break down these walls.  Students are following the panelists’ advice with lunchtime Anglo-Latino meetings to build formal and informal structures to raise awareness and reduce distress caused by segregation and distrust.
