Re:sound #119: The Cambio Show

This hour: change. Some of us crave it, some of us avoid it at all costs. But whenever and wherever it happens, change creates fallout, intentional or not.

Nuevo South
by John Biewen and Tennessee Watson (Center for Documentary Studies, 2008)
Siler City, North Carolina, used to be a typical small southern town: lots of families had roots going back a century or two and its citizens were proud of the town's close-knit culture and neighborly feel. But in the 1990s the culture began to change, as Latino immigrants started moving to Siler City, bringing their own traditions and customs along with them.

Si Se Puede
by Dan Collison and Elizabeth Meister (Long Haul Productions, 2008)
It's been 72 years since the "strike heard round the world," when autoworkers in Flint, Michigan, occupied a General Motors plant and jumpstarted the union movement in the United States. But in recent years the power of unions in the U.S. has waned and sit-down strikes don't happen much anymore. Well, that changed in December 2008, when workers occupied the Republic Windows and Door Factory in Chicago.
