Presencia 404 Preview

WGBY’s bilingual series Presencia looks at education, especially regarding language and the arts. Meet educator and multilingual poet María Luisa Arroyo, as she performs two of her original poems — “Cuéntame” and “No Hay Elles.” Then, learn how to advocate for children within the school system with helpful tips from Dr. Milagros Martinez-Schettini of the Latino Education Institute and parent Hector L. Santos. Finally, CODA Latin Jazz Fusion Ensemble changes it up a bit, performing the songs “Walking” and “To Alicia” (both by Edilio Bermúdez), before author/teacher/translator/poet Rhina P. Espaillat shares her journey as a literary professional, starting as a young girl writing poetry in both English and Spanish.
