Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Father Proud of What Lin Has Done for Latinos

On Wednesday, ABC aired Game Changers With Robin Roberts, where the Good Morning America host interviewed some of 2016’s biggest movers and shakers, like LeBron James, Michael Phelps, and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Robin joined Lin at his childhood home in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, the inspiration for his first Broadway musical, In the Heights. Lin’s father, Luis, welcomed Robin into his home and pridefully boasted about his son’s achievements. Luis said that Lin has changed “the vision of Latinos in this country,” which Lin clarified, “You’re speaking to the larger statement of having Latinos not playing gang members in a Broadway show.” Luis agreed, adding, “There are politics and political change, which is what you do. In your part of the world.”

Lin jokingly responded with, “I’m more of a song and dance man” as he smiled at the camera.
