Exploring Borderlands | American Passages: Unit 2
Description

Discover writings based on the experiences of mestizos, people of mixed racial and cultural backgrounds, in this half-hour video from the American Passages series. The U.S./Mexico border region has long been a site of contact, conflict, and new beginnings. It is a place where geographical, cultural, political, and racial boundaries are challenged and restructured. Contemporary Chicano literature and culture arises out of a literary history that begins with the narratives of Spanish exploration.
