After Trump's election, Lydia got punched in the face at the mall because of her dark skin and afro-like hair.

Lydia, during our second interview, at her Frida Kahlo inspired apartment.

  En este episodio, exploramos lo que significa identidad -we talk to Lydia about being Mexican and African American in the Midwest - dealing with the issues of Inmigración and racial profiling - and about the threats her father received after Trump’s election.
