Delia and Frank Sanchez

Tampa native Frank Sanchez interviews his mother, Delia, about her pioneering days, first as a female college student at a time when few women entered the nation's universities and later as the founder of Hillsborough County's Head Start program in the mid-1960s. Delia is well-known in Florida, particularly in West Tampa, for her leadership roles in education. Frank, a private consultant conducting business in Latin America and Europe, served as an adviser in the Clinton administration.
