This edition: The Same-Sex Marriage DebateTweet
Original tape date: May 20, 2009.
On this edition of Independent Sources we look at the attitudes towards gay marriage and homosexuality in the Muslim and Black communities and whether their media reflect these sentiments. We learn about a program that encourages black men to stay in school and the good press that it has been getting here and in the Caribbean. Then, we profile a Bronx newspaper that is giving young journalists a chance to tell their stories.
