IN PERSON: Que Cora La Voz: Spanish Radio in the Yakima Valley

Event Description

Join Yesenia Navarrete Hunter, one of Humanities Washington’s Public Humanities Fellows, for the very first We Are Neighbors / Somos Vecinos Listening Party. These events are deliberate spaces for conversations within diverse communities. Neighbors of all backgrounds are invited to attend and participate in creating cross-cultural dialogue across the Yakima Valley.

For this listening party, Que Cora La Voz: Spanish Radio in the Yakima Valley, we welcome Dr. Monica De La Torre, author of “Femenista Frequencies,” a book about Spanish Radio, Radio KDNA, and community building in the Yakima Valley. We’ll also get a chance to hear from Yakima’s own Rick Hernandez as he shares stories of his mother Herminia Mendez who founded the first Spanish radio program in the Yakima Valley in the 1950s. These incredible stories will help us understand community building, storytelling, and place-making from the Spanish radio perspective.
