This edition: Haitians at the BorderTweet
Original tape date: December 5, 2016.
First aired: December 7, 2016.
On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we learn about how the US’ increasingly stringent immigration policy is stranding thousands of Haitian asylum seekers at the US/Mexico. We mark nearly a quarter of a century of bringing black independent films to new audiences with the Co-Founder of the African Diaspora International Film Festival. Then we get a lesson in the history of the woman who popularized belly dancing in the United States.
