    Nice topic for the article. Maybe a bit more in depth for the next time. Latinos have been an important part of the Durham community for decades. It’d be great to read more stories celebrating the culture. Thanks!

    HI! My name is Adriana Ruggiero. I’m a JOurnalist based in Los Angeles. I have worked for the most part of my career in Spanish TV and right now I’m working on my own stories about Latinos in the US to be published on my YouTUbe Channel. I am planning on visiting Durham on Dec 27th, when I’ll be interviewing the 3 Latinos running for the City Council and I’ll like to interview some of you about the Latino community in NC
