"My 35-year-old father got in a rowboat in Havana, Cuba, and rowed our family to America," Antonio Sacre once bragged.
Sacre, 27, of Chicago, travels across the country telling stories in both Spanish and English to encourage kids and parents to share stories about their culture and their past.
Sacre's father spoke only Spanish; his mother only English. Sacre spoke both languages until his first day of kindergarten, when he was so excited he spoke Spanish. The kids made fun of him so he changed his name to Tony and never spoke Spanish again until he visited his grandmother.
