Paola Marizan / WNIN Tri State Public Media

Reggae prodigy, Zion, talks about his childhood in the West Indies and the Virgin Islands donde vivio mucho tiempo without electricity or running water, how that struggle was an inspiration to write the música he writes today and how living between two religions, Christianity and Rastafarianism, made him question his identity.

We decided to do this episodio because even thought in the general sense, Zion is not considered a Latino, being from the Caribbean, he shares a lot of the same struggles and experiences Latinos face.

Census.gov

Every ten years, the government of the United States of America issues a mandatory census to count the population.  The results of the census determine the number of seats that each state gets in the House of Representatives, the distribution of federal funds, and enforcement of voting rights laws. Now, the 2020 Census tiene una pregunta sobre citizenship. The Department of Justice requested that the Census Bureau reinstate a citizenship question on the 2020 Census.
