FAQ: Latino Stories from WWII Previous Broadcasts
KQED World: Sun, Sep 18, 2011 -- 11:30 PM
An estimated half-million Latino servicemen answered the country's call during WWII, but their stories have remained largely untold and obscure. This program will explore this topic with a panel discussion and taped interviews that tell a sweeping story of immigration and patriotism, and a war that shaped homefront communities in decisive new ways. From prison cells in Berlin to the date fields of California's Coachella Valley, WWII changed a generation of American Latinos who developed a new vision for the future. Produced by KQED.
