INSIDE STORIES: Marisol Gonzalez

Episode Summary

Marisol Gonzalez tells the story of when she and her family moved into an all white neighborhood and were not fully welcomed. She was determined to win over her neighbors and threw a party. In our interview we talk about the impact this party had on her family and her neighborhood. We also discuss the difference between telling a story in a classroom to people you know versus on a large stage in front of 200 strangers.
