On this edition of Independent Sources, we mark the Day of the Dead celebration with two separate discussions about why many Mexican and Jewish families in the US repatriate their deceased relatives. We learn about the traditional breads that are offered during the celebration and we see how one New York artist is crossing the Day of the Dead with the civil rights movement.
