Voices of the MC

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.
