Hinojosa recently interviewed Sotomayor in conjunction with the justice’s new memoir, “My Beloved World.”
On its Twitter feed, Latino USA released excerpts from the Jan. 19 talk, including Sotomayor’s thoughts about equality, stereotypes and communities.
“Equality is not something you talk about. You live it by example…You insist on it,” she said, according to Latino USA.
In another part of the interview, the justice, who joined the Supreme Court in 2009, talked about the importance of writing and speaking up.
“I wrote this book not just so every Latino would see a piece of themselves but so the rest of the world would see who we are,” she told Hinojosa.
Later, she added: “I don’t think you can conquer your fears until you voice them.”
UPDATE: The interview can be heard on the Latino USA website.
