This edition: The Gypsy Mystique

Episode Details

Original tape date: November 19, 2012.

First aired: November 21, 2012.

On this edition of Independent Sources, we look in on the Roma/Gypsy community in the US and how some of the younger generation are trying to dispel the negative stereotypes associated with the culture. We explore the growing trend toward atheism in the African American community and the response to that. Then we see how two Latino artists encouraged a Brooklyn community to celebrate the day of the dead.
