Latinx

Since taking office, President Trump has worked to gain more Latino support in Florida by casting his rival Democrats as socialists – like the regimes in Cuba and Venezuela. Last week, WLRN talked to the Democratic SuperPAC Priorities U.S.A. about the Trump's strategy. They claim it’s the President who resembles Latin American dictators.

This week WLRN speaks with Kelly Sadler, a spokesperson for America First Action, a Republican SuperPAC that strongly supports Trump. (Sadler was a communications aide to President Trump but left the White House amid a controversy over remarks she reportedly made about the late Senator John McCain.) Sadler spoke to WLRN’s Tim Padgett and Alejandra Martinez from Washington about the President – and how the GOP plans to attract more Hispanic voters.

The Perez Art Museum Miami and ArtCenter/South Florida are hosting two days of panels and studio tours that center around what it means to create as a Latinx artist.

The Latinx Art Sessions will also explore identity and representation in the art world. 

WLRN’s Nadege Green spoke with Naiomy Guerrero, one of the event's organizers and a curatorial fellow at PAMM.

WLRN: Latinx is a fairly new term and one that has invoked strong arguments for and against it. What does Latinx mean to you?
