Antigua Me From
Trevor Nathan tells the story of his first visit to his parents’ home country of Antigua. The Nathans immigrated to Louisiana in 1990 and raised Trevor and his brother Travis on the Westbank of New Orleans. In interviewing his father, George Nathan, Trevor seeks to better understand himself and his family’s position between two cultures. George describes his perspective of the family’s visit to Antigua, his upbringing on the island, and his immigration experience.
