“Anyone striving to understand and improve this country should read her story.” —Gloria Steinem, author of My Life on the Road

The Emmy Award–winning journalist and anchor of NPR’s Latino USA tells the story of immigration in America through her family’s experiences and decades of reporting, painting an unflinching portrait of a country in crisis in this memoir that is “quite simply beautiful, written in Maria Hinojosa’s honest, passionate voice” (BookPage).

Maria Hinojosa is an award-winning journalist who, for nearly thirty years, has reported on stories and communities in America that often go ignored by the mainstream media—from tales of hope in the South Bronx to the unseen victims of the War on Terror and the first detention camps in the US. Bestselling author Julia Álvarez has called her “one of the most important, respected, and beloved cultural leaders in the Latinx community.”

In Once I Was You, Maria shares her intimate experience growing up Mexican American on the South Side of Chicago. She offers a personal and illuminating account of how the rhetoric around immigration has not only long informed American attitudes toward outsiders, but also sanctioned willful negligence and profiteering at the expense of our country’s most vulnerable populations—charging us with the broken system we have today.

An urgent call to fellow Americans to open their eyes to the immigration crisis and understand that it affects us all, this honest and heartrending memoir paints a vivid portrait of how we got here and what it means to be a survivor, a feminist, a citizen, and a journalist who owns her voice while striving for the truth.

Also available in Spanish as Una vez fui tú.

    It's a book that 'takes few prisoners' from the beginning, bluntly setting forth the difficulties of being a Latino-American in the USA from the 1950s and 60s to the present, and at the media world during the 90s and more recently. An interesting work, definitely worth hearing read by the author herself. It is also inspiring as it was meant to be to newer generations of diverse journalists, refugees and immigrants who hope to carve a niche and identity for themselves, and those who are interested in seeing refugees and immigrants treated with respect and decency and warmth.

    Just wow. I feel like I went through a full history class that not only filled my mind but also filled my soul. I loved her beautiful words and the passion in her recounting her history, our history.
