REAL STATE OF AMERICA ATLAS

Host Michelle Schroeder-Fletcher speaks with Joni Seager and Cynthia Enloe about their book, REAL STATE OF AMERICA ATLAS, which draws back the curtain on our complex nation to reveal the myriad realities of the American experience-from our changing demographics to patterns of home ownership to the kinds of food we eat. The atlas upends many long-held myths and shows us who we are today.

THE LETTER I: Interview with African Youth and Community Organization

program: 
The Underground
program date: 
Wed, 05/25/2011

Zoe interviewed Jamal Dar of The African Youth and Community Organization (AYCO). AYCO was formed in early 2010 to address the lack of services and programs for African immigrant and refugee families. Schools are inadequately equipped to deal with African refugee youth; parents lack the necessary language skills for effective communication with the schools and other community organizations; and existing organizations too often under-serve or cut loose families, leaving them ill-prepared for interactions with the larger community.
