This edition: Transcending Race

Episode Details

Original tape date: March 16, 2011.

On this edition of Independent Sources, we talk about how a recent House Bill that proposes the out right cutting of federal funding to Planned Parenthood could affect poor and minority communities. We ask whether or not a trend towards more people identifying as more than one race signifies a new era in race relations in the United States. We drop in on the 9th annual awards ceremony honoring the best in New York City's ethnic media. Then, we hear about an event to bring attention to the plight of women in war-torn countries.
