    Dear Radio Diaspora Collective,

    I am Khedija Gadhoum. I am currently an educator of Spanish and Latin American Studies. I am also a documentary filmmaker. Since I moved to Atlanta from Michigan, I was looking for interesting programs to nourish my spirit and my soul, until I found your Radio Diaspora! I love your programs, the issues that you discuss every week, and the type of music that you broadcast.

    I am very interested in joining your Collective for the following reeasons: to learn and educate myself and my students from your programs and to contribute to them, as a researcher on Latin American cultures and as an African diasporic citizen myself (I am originally from Tunisia, North Africa). I researched and lived extensively in Latin America and my current film project is on Latinos in Atlanta. It would be great if we could work together and be able to include a segment or a series on the Afro-Latino community here.

    I sincerely hope that we will connect soon.
