On this edition of Independent Sources, we discuss the fall out from the scandal surrounding the City Time initiative that is hundreds of millions of dollars over budget. We profile one Latina who is influencing a whole generation of female politicians. We hear about the African Diaspora Film Festival. Then, we meet two immigrant women who've found kinship in the bruising arena of roller derby.
