"Migrant stories / Migrant art" is a multimedia presentation involving interviews conducted by Lindenwood students of Spanish with people from the Spanish-speaking Americas who are now living in the United States. The purpose of the interviews was to help students understand the life journeys of these migrants, and then craft stories which do justice to each person’s path. In this presentation, as students relate their narratives, clips from Yolanda Cruz’s 2009 documentary film 2501 Migrants: A Journey are woven into the fabric of students’ texts, to bring out some of the many ways in which migrant trajectories can also ‘leave their mark’ on the communities that remain behind.
