Cultural Diversity Stories
The La Crosse Tribune recently ran an article on the La Crosse city's Hispanic population celebrating the Day of the Dead.
The article opened with a backstory on a woman, Nemecia, and her journey across the Rio Grande into the U.S. The report moves beyond the stereotype by going into details of the woman's life and bringing to life the struggles, both culturally and physically, of adapting and traveling into a new country.
The story shares about the traditions of celebrating the Day of the Dead and its blend with the Roman Catholic holiday of All Souls Day.
The story does this through both quotes and data about the way the holiday is celebrated.
