There are many people who are “hidden in (plain) sight”. We see news bulletins about immigrants and refugees, but how many faces or life stories can we attach to these soundbites?
I believe we gain “hidden insights” into ourselves and our society by paying close attention to people who have been overlooked or misrepresented. I’m not talking about spokespeople or representatives. I mean ordinary people who have wisdom and experience and ideas to share.
The first part in this series takes us to Jászjákóhalma, a village on the Northern Plains of Hungary. Here we meet two Roma mothers and breadwinners, Julia and Andrea, and hear about their lives and thoughts on racism, education, and tolerance.
