Battle Creek’s Hispanic community fights to overcome language barriers

In this series, we head to Battle Creek, Michigan to meet some fearless community leaders who are doing the work to #ChangeTheNarrative in their own backyard. With support and funding from our sponsor W.K. Kellogg Foundation, five dynamic women share their experiences, challenges and show us how they are using racial healing circles and empowering themselves to create change. We’ll examine the diverse history of Battle Creek and see how the Black, Burmese and LatinX communities are addressing the legacies of inequity. Maya Eaglin reports.
