On this edition of Independent Sources - we talk President Obama's policies towards Africa. Will he become more of the messianic force on the continent that many Africans thought he would be . Or will his second term bring more of the same stayed reservation. We hear about an MIT Doctoral's student's global initiative to get high school students more involved in developing community projects in Sierra Leone. Then we profile an immigrant artist organization that's fighting to get more recognition for foreign artists.
