Video: Pulitzer prize-winner Junot Diaz delivers his vision of an evolving America

LatinaLista — Described as "a spotter of the future, a curator of the past, a man of the here-and-now," Pulitzer prize-winning author Junot Díaz discusses with Bill Moyers his vision of a new America.

It's an America that is seeing a major change in demographics, a rising civic participation from some of the youngest citizens and an increase in transparency from a community formerly closeted. Diaz acknowledges each of these segments of the US population and comments on how the evolution of each segment is impacting the present and future of the country.
