Nueva York es la Frontera

Baeza, Pablo

Nueva York es La Frontera is a multimedia documentary website showcasing the life stories of New York-based Latina immigrant activists, women who migrated from all over the hemisphere to New York, where they now work in solidarity with other immigrant communities. Their stories, of growing up bi-nationally and bi-culturally, struggling as immigrant women, and coming to find their strengths in community-based work, are meant to create dialogue about the diversity of the Latinx migrant experience in New York, and the many issues, struggles and communities that exist in New York, as much a border town and immigrant gateway as anywhere in Texas or California.

Keywords: Immigrant & Latinx New York, multimedia/digital humanities, documentary, life history/biography, activism, feminism/gender, migration and diaspora, border studies, activist spaces & communities, autoethnography.
