The Roots of Our People: From One World to Another, Juntos!

ByJuntos NC Garner Magnet School

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In this bilingual book, The Roots of Our People: From One World to Another--Juntos, high school students of Juntos NC illustrate the roots of “where they’re from” to demonstrate the strength of the Latino community. In a collection of poems, memoirs, essays, vignettes, and letters to the community, these authors define and embrace the power, challenges, and pride of living in two worlds—one within their Latino families and communities, and the other in their academic world. These worlds are not separate, but integrated, and it is their intersections that weave their values together. In resounding individual and collective voices, the authors describe how they embrace the roots of their people while they pursue higher education, advance new opportunities, and advocate for the immigrant community in America. It is the dualities of their identities that move them to write and to boldly proclaim the strengths, assets, power, and perseverance of their people.
