When you are a child migrant worker in the cotton, fruit and vegetable fields of Central California, there are many ways your life can go. For my upcoming guest, John Hill, holding fast to his dreams and being sent to a loving foster home turned his life in a positive direction with a happy ending.
Join me to hear John Hill, author of "Dreamer in the Fields”, share the highlights of his life as revealed in his book. After overcoming backbreaking drudgery, nights of hunger, the substandard living conditions,and the dangers of migrant camp life, John discovered a new life when he was taken from his parents and placed in a benevolent foster care home.
John's success and dedication to helping others through his work as Director of the Office of Affirmative Action Compliance in Los Angeles and Chief of Staff for Los Angeles County Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke of the Second Supervisorial District are testimony to the power of daring to dream.
