Moments: A Conversation Series

Moments: A Conversation Series features University of Mississippi students with Hispanic heritage.  Each student shares a pivotal moment in his or her life, hence the project’s name.  Moments shows the various experiences among Hispanic and Latino people, especially in the South.

One student explains the confusion she often evokes in people because of her African American and Hispanic heritage, while another student shares an issue he faced because of his LGBTQ+ identity.  Each student in Moments discusses an intimate story, and it shows the diversity in experiences and lifestyles in Hispanic people.

In the video, each person’s name is listed with their classification and a Latin American country — the listed country reveals the person’s heritage.  Most interviewees are either from Mississippi or have been living in the state since attending the University of Mississippi.
