Extra Edition: Dealing with Back-to-School Blues. As children across the US prepare to return to school, they may be feeling insecure, anxious or overwhelmed. Stress of the pandemic and fears related to school safety exacerbate those feelings. Children of color have an additional burden: systemic racism, which can lead to chronic stress, anxiety, and depression. What can parents do? Advocates are launching a national campaign called “Sound It Out,” to use the power of music to support middle-school kids’ emotional wellbeing.

Guest: Dr. Regina Miranda, Psychology Professor, Director of Laboratory for the Study of Youth Cognition and Suicide, Hunter College, New York, NY.

“First Time Home.” A conversation with a young Triqui Californian about her recent documentary film titled “First Time Home.” The film, narrated in Spanish, English and Triqui, tells the story of her visit, along with three cousins, to her family’s ancestral village in the highlands of Oaxaca to meet their gravely-ill grandfather.

Guest: Noemi Librado Sánchez, Co-Director, “First Time Home” Film, Fresno, CA.

Also, a news contributor reports on the deadly floods ravaging Kentucky and the efforts to bring emergency relief.
