Latino USA's Maria Hinajosa to Discuss New PBS News Show

Journalist Maria Hinajosa is host of NPR's Latino USA. She's also the first Latina to anchor and produce PBS news content.  Need to Know- America By the Numbers: Clarkston Georgia looks at the growing ethnic and racial diversity in a town that was once overwhelmingly white.  Hinajosa says she's looking forward to hearing what viewers think about the content of the program, which explores the new American electorate.  She says the families featured in the program display a complexity of political perspectives that challenges stereotypes.

There will be a free screening of Need to Know, American By the Numbers Clarkston Georgia, followed by a discussion with Maria, tonight at 7pm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque.
