This morning’s guest is Tamil Maldonado, chief operating officer and founder of the Raíces Brewing Company, which recently was awarded the Best Brewery “Por y Para La Raza” in Denver by Westword. Maldonado shares her vision to create a cultural space to bring community, culture, and cerveza together to impact positively on the mostly white-dominant industry.
Storytellers of Color airs on the second Monday of each month as part of A Public Affair on KGNU. The main goal of the show is to provide a safe space for communicators of color, through a series of conversations, to elevate their voices and discuss issues of equality in the media. The show is inspired by recent gatherings of various working groups, including Latinx Voices, organized by Diamond Hardiman from Free Press’ News Voices Colorado Project, and Journos of Color Network led by Tina Griego, reporter, editor, and coach from Colorado News Collaborative.
The Storytellers of Color series are a collaborative effort, with an open invitation to other storytellers to come into our airwaves, to tell their stories, and occupy the safe space we are providing every second Monday of the month.
