Hispanic Community

I was pleased to speak on WCHL twice recently.  First I was a guest on D.G.Martin’s Who’s Talking? evening program discussing my new casebook, Sexual Identity Law in Context.  D.G. and I had an introspective conversation about the legal challenges faced by LGBT persons, particularly in North Carolina.You can hear the show at this link:


A week later, I was invited to be a speaker on one of the panels at the annual WCHL Community Forum entitled Diversity:  Creating a Place for Everyone.  The conversation among the persons on this panel dealt with issues that many different groups face in our community.  You can click on the link below and scroll to the 2:00 p.m. hour to listen to this discussion:


Both are examples of great local programming that WCHL does for our community.

El Centro Hispano held a community meeting on April 13, 2011 at their Carrboro office located in Carrboro Plaza Shopping Center.  At the meeting, El Centro president and CEO Pila Rocha-Goldberg (pictured above) informed the community at large about El Centro’s accomplishments during the eight months they have been open in their Carrboro office. Colleen Blue, El Centro Programs Director, pictured above with me and Mayor Chilton, helped with the presentation. The occasion also marked the opening of an art exhibit comprised of a collection of traditional masks from Guerrero, Mexico and the work of painter Cornelio Campos, as well as art from ECH’s “Art Workshop for Children” and of students of “Mi Escuelita Spanish Immersion Preschool.”
