Documenting Youth in Action

Moises Velez is a Peabody-award winning producer and currently the head of development for mun2, the NBCU cable network that celebrates the lifestyle of U.S. Latino youth. He spoke with Cable in the Classroom about the network’s documentary news series revolving around some of the most important issues relevant to Latino youth - including immigration, the environment and military recruitment in schools. This series includes “Toxic City,” the topic of our recent podcast with student Ryan Perez from Los Angeles, and the “Latinos in the Military” news special.

In this podcast (mp3, 10.6MB), Moises shared how mun2 picked the topics for the documentary series and explained the process that goes into putting together the films. He also shared his thoughts on how teachers and students can – and should – use the series in classrooms.
