On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Abi Ishola, we hear about the thousands of homeowners in various neighborhoods of color that are still suffering because of the rampant predatory lending that took place during the mortgage crisis. We talk about the effort to get more people to sign up for organ donation at a time when demand is at an all time high. Then we profile a Chinese immigrant who left her high-powered job as a corporate attorney to become a restaurateur.
