In this excerpt from his longer story “Faster than Sooner,” Antonio Sacre illuminates the power of knowing one another’s stories. While studying to become an actor, Sacre happened into storytelling through a class at Northwestern University. Because he found that he was often excluded from acting jobs because he was seen as either “too ethnic” or “not ethnic enough,” he took on storytelling performances to pay the bills. During that experience, he became expert at bilingual story telling as a way to reach both the English-speaking and Spanish-speaking students in the Chicago schools. As he developed his craft, Sacre travelled to Mexico and other countries in Latin America, learning the history, culture, and stories of countries about which he had never learned while in school.
