Juan Rulfo volvió a la vida en Philly esta semana

 04/17/2019 - 15:40
"Literature to listen to" is a new podcast production of AL DÍA News. 

Suele ser fácilmente ignorado, quizá porque escribió todo su trabajo en español. Pero no en la era de internet. Sus palabras estuvieron más vivas que nunca esta semana en el estudio de AL DÍA, durante la grabación del primer episodio de una serie de podcast titulada ‘Literatura para escuchar’, que se lanzará próximamente.

Juan Rulfo was alive in Philly this week

"Literature to listen to" is a new podcast production of AL DÍA News. 

Perhaps because he wrote all his work in Spanish, this master of literature is easily overlooked. In the age of the Internet, not anymore. His words were alive this week in a AL DÍA Studio during the recording of the first episode of a podcast series entitled “Literature to Listen to” (Literatura Oral), soon to be launched.

“La justicia y la verdad solo pueden florecer cuando a los periodistas se les da libertad de expresión, y así surge la prosperidad...”, dijo el expresidente hace 30 años —antes de pronunciar las palabras mágicas que derrumbaron el Muro de Berlín, como si se tratara de esa pared en el Libro de Josué, en la Biblia.

The “Marshall Plan” to save journalism can't ignore the elephant in the room

The AL DÍA Media Educational Foundation works to increase diversity in newsrooms. 

The Knight Foundation Commission Report on "Trust, Media and Democracy" hit the nail on the head. This is the way we did read it: Where are the Latinos/as in America’s newsrooms, 20 years after the NAHJ started its now forgotten national #Parity Project?

Una carta a mi presentador de televisión favorito, Tom Brokaw

¿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.  

A necessary letter to my Favorite TV Anchor, Mr. Tom Brokaw

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.

¿Samba política en Harrisburg? Podría ser la  "música política" de fondo de la aparición del "Muro de Pensilvania", el mismo que podría convertirse en todo un desafío para los candidatos presidenciales que ansían los votos electorales de este estado, uno de los que estarán en disputa en la elección presidencial del año entrante.
