"Dos Idiomas, Una Comunidad" explores the racial and political challenges of bilingual education in the United States, and the role that Margarita Muñiz played within the dual bilingual language program in the city of Boston and the state of Massachusetts. The film begins by shedding light on the fight for better bilingual education programs during the Boston Public Schools’ desegregation case of the 1970’s and introduces Margarita as an advocate for the children who depended on it to succeed.
