Being Latino in Iowa

All this week we’ve been hearing what it’s like “Being Latino in Iowa” from Iowa Public Radio’s Rob Dillard. This hour, we top off the series with discussion about the pull many Iowa Latinos feel between the need to assimilate into American culture and the desire to hold on to their heritage. Rob Dillard will join us. Also, JoAnn Mackey, Executive Director of Latino Resources; Juan Pena of New Life Furniture in Des Moines; and Nancy Gardner, Principal of West Liberty Elementary School, a school with the only dual language program in the state.
