¿Es el secretario de Educación de Pensilvania, Pedro Rivera, alguien “no integrado”? No. Sin embargo Pedro es otro latino de los EE.UU. que puede parecer como otro "brown grand-baby”, que necesita trabajar más duro en integración, si fuéramos a creerle a Tom Brokaw. O confiar en la media verdad que la estrella de NBC ha decidido de manera inesperada validar.

Is somebody like PA Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera, “unassimilated”, I asked in our recent #ALDIAHigherEdLEADERS Summit2019, where he was the Keynote Speaker? No. However, Pedro is yet another U.S. Latino now under suspicion of perhaps being yet another “brown grand-baby”—  one who needs to work harder at assimilation, or learn better English, if we were to believe former national TV anchor Tom Brokaw. If we were to trust the half-truth the NBC star’s gaffe has unexpectedly championed.

An American saint of Latino descent: Father Félix Varela

 03/22/2016 - 14:15
Padre Felix Varela started his American journey right here in Philadelphia, in 1824, when he came to our city that year in search for a printer to publish a little journal with a huge vision he called “El Habanero.” Above, a painting of Varela, in an artistic rendition by local artist Orlando Quevedo, displayed in AL DIA News Media office in downtown Philadelphia. To the right, the cover of the first issue of "El Habanero," printed in Old City in 1824.

Although his sainthood is yet to be declared by the Catholic Church, miracles abound in the life of Father Felix Varela, the champion of thousands of Irish immigrants who in the 19th century suffered, fought and, eventually, prevailed in carving out their own space in the American society, just as Latinos are doing today.
