"One Latina Breaking the Language Barrier" - Poetry and Stories Tell of Migrant Women Who Succeeded
Meet author Alice O. Carrillo, "One Latina Breaking the Language Barrier." As a child, she worked with her family as a migrant worker, and was known as one who followed the sun.
Her story offers a powerful tribute to migrant workers who have been able to break their chain of poverty. Her heartwarming true stories come from the words of great women who suffered as migrant children working in the fields, but were able to rise above it to receive an education and attend college. The author shares poems she wrote years ago about her experiences in the fields and learning in all-English classrooms. She relates “the emotional abuse we encountered and how we overcame it and were able to attend college, becoming professionals in our area of expertise.”
This ground-breaking book will inspire and offer hope to the many still enslaved by the poverty of migrant life. It is the story of children who followed the sun and were able to turn their lives around to make their dreams come true.

About the Author: Born in Arizona, Alice O. Carrillo moved with her family to California where they became migrant workers. “Little did we know we were starting a long journey as migrants who followed the sun from sunrise to sundown for years. We suffered physically, emotionally and socially. We never had friends we could call a true friend. We never lasted at a location more than two months. We never attended school on a regular basis. We were taken out of school to help support the family. Our parents only worried about paying the rent and if there was going to be food on the table.”
