Voices of the MC is a podcast where the students of the University of Arkansas Multicultural Center share their stories of challenge and triumph. Our mission is to celebrate narratives that exist outside of the mainstream so that others might learn from the lived experience of MC students. Every story is valuable and deserves to be told and heard. These are not political talking points, these are our truths.
Escaping the Delta
Korie, sophomore psychology student, describes her experience growing up in the Arkansas Delta as the daughter of a white mother and a black father. She shares with us her story of heartbreak, battling against small-town gossip, escaping from the Delta to attend the University of Arkansas, and how she plans to dedicate her life’s work to helping others escape from their own personal Deltas.
