Salinas students publish ‘Our American Stories: Volume 2’

How can we begin to change the world around us? How can we begin to understand when acts of racism occur every day?

A North Salinas High School teacher and his students found that these questions can be answered by telling their stories.

The book “Our American Stories: Volume 2” was published by North Salinas high school students Alisal and Everett Alvarez. In the Japanese-language story collection, students tell stories of their families ’immigration experiences.

The book shares photos and stories of local families from all backgrounds.

North Salinas High School student Carl Sabado points out his family photos appearing in a new book written by him and other local high school students.

Strength in numbers

NSHS junior Carl Sabado wrote the story of the financial disparity his family experienced after coming from the Philippines.

“I saw the difference between families with more money and those who didn’t have it, like mine,” Sabado said. “When I was growing up, we didn’t have the things other people had. I didn’t even want my friends to know how I was living, so I never let them come.”
