    The Secret of Chiqui Versace

    The Secret of Chiqui Versace

    In this special episode of Mosaic, our podcast on immigration, we introduce Chiqui Versace: a Rhode Island resident who came to the U.S. at 16, looking for work and hoping to support his family back in Colombia. He also came here to be his true self – to not have to hide anything about who he is. From the outside, Versace lived what appeared to be a normal life. For decades he was gainfully employed, paid taxes every year, and volunteered his time for charitable causes. But to stay here, to live the life he had always wanted to live, he had to carry a very big secret.

Local History, Our National Experience

I heard a episode on NPR and had to subscribe! This is an example of an individual Public Radio station sharing local history and current events with implications for our national experience! An offering to be proud of from The Public's Radio (Rhode Island Public Radio)!

Riveting! Striking, Well Told Stories A Must Listen!

This pod cast is phenomenal and the stories about people and immigration are filled with the depth, truth and complexity of life. I love the hosts! I found Alex Nunes to ask the questions I had in my mind. He also seemed down to earth and skilled at connection with people. I appreciated Ana Gonzalez voice and storytelling. All and all this is an Art Piece with all the right parts calling out to Americans to pay attention to immigration with all the ways it is affect our whole human heart.
