Episode Details

Original tape date: July 17, 2017.

First aired: July 20, 2017.

We start this episode in Queens, to talk to Colombian fashion designer and singer Lia Samantha. She has received worldwide recognition in the industry because she uses ancient pieces in her designs which stem from aboriginal cultures and her own Afro-Colombian roots.

Then, we'll go to Lower Manhattan, to the Center for Work Education in the City College
where Carmen Boullosa will interview two well-known experts in transatlantic relations,
Brown University Professor Julio Ortega and the German professor and writer Ottmar Ette.

After that, we'll go to Midtown to talk to Roberto Carlos Lange about his musical and acting work in Helado Negro. Lange parents are from Ecuador but he was born in Florida and currently living in Brooklyn. His artistic work is clearly influenced by the cultural mix.

We'll finish in Brooklyn to get to know the work of the Mexican photographer and activist Cinthya Santos Briones. She'll talk about the different sides of her career as an anthropologist and documentary photographer, including her most recent work: Abuelas
