The Hidden Lives of Vermont's Mexican Immigrants - 05/10

Dominique Haller

On today's show, we'll talk to B. Amore, an Italian-American artist, writer and educator. After having worked on a multi-media traveling exhibit on Ellis Island in which she used artefacts from her own family going back seven generations, she asked undocumented immigrants from Mexico to make dioramas out of objects that have been handed down in their own family.

What has been passed down to you in your family? What stories do those artefacts tell? Who are the people who may be living hidden lives in your community? Have you ever reached out to them? Share your story on the air or at our voicemail by calling 1877-GLOBE-07 or by leaving a comment below.
