This edition: The Caribbean IdentityTweet
Original tape date: September 22, 2014.
First aired: September 24, 2014.
On this edition of Independent Sources hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we talk about Caribbean immigrants struggle to self identify in the next U.S. Census. We meet Wilhelmina Obatola Grant, an artist and cancer survivor who uses her art assemblages to bring attention to the disease. We hear about a film festival that’s geared towards bringing the city’s Nepalese community from out of the shadows. Then we profile a Brooklyn-based cobbler who’s giving new meaning to the phrase, high fashion.
