The Chronicles of Dallas Barrios Podcast
About The Chronicles of Dallas Barrios Podcast
Thank you for showing interest in the “The Chronicles of Dallas Barrios Podcast.”
In our second season we will highlight personal immigration and migration stories to Oak Cliff, as collected and narrated by Sunset High School students, their families, and community members of Oak Cliff, Dallas, Texas.
This project is supported by funding from the Institute for Diversity and Civic Life, made possible by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
This Season's Podcast is hosted by Maestro Alonso, Olimpia, Juana, and Nelyda (Our Joven Historians) as they share their findings.
“No dejes que alguien más dicté la historia de tu vida y de tus ancestros.”
“Don’t let someone else dictate the story of your life and your ancestors.”
The Chronicles of Dallas Barrios Podcast podcast is an ode to our community. Telling our own stories is what we seek to accomplish with this project. Dallas is home to diverse groups of people that rarely have an opportunity to share their unique history. Whether they are a first generation business owner or a fourth generation community leader, we seek to preserve the unique history de nuestros barrios so that future generations can learn about their antepasados.
Through the creation of this podcast the Emerging Historians intend to preserve the stories of our challenging times focused on the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) experience in the City of Dallas. In our conversations with businesses, whether they be restaurants, artists, or boutiques we aspire to use our network to connect community members to resources, and document the narratives of those often overlooked and marginalized.
This Season's Podcast is hosted by Victoria Ferrell-Ortiz, Biviana Hurtado, Jennifer Rangel, and Johnny Reyes.
