Brown Girl, Brown Girl, Hasn’t Anyone
Is a story set during historical Panamá when Panamá belonged to the United States. It compares the relationships between children within their own race vis-à-vis the immigrant, but dominant race. A very highly charged America, Europe and Scandinavia, “Brown Girl, Brown Girl, Hasn’t Anyone,” lends a voice to the immigration crises, from the protagonist’s point of view to that which may be worthy to some behavioral scientists. I wrote the story in two languages, English and Spanish, but it conceivably could be in any other two languages, due in part of the immigration crises. I see it being used in classrooms, for reading and comprehension, for social studies, history, civic, religion. “Brown Girl, Brown Girl, Hasn’t Anyone,” is moving, touching, and very relevant to present day global issues.
Included are questions on current issues, like, DACA.
