This edition: Polishing the Parade

Episode Details

Original tape date: June 2, 2014.

First aired: June 4, 2014.

On this edition of Independent Sources hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we talk to a new board member of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade about how they’re trying to change the event’s image after the last board was disbanded under a shroud of controversy. Sarah Pizon speaks to Sonia Manzano, known for her role as Maria on Sesame Street, and Aurora Anaya-Cerda, the founder of the independent bookstore La Casa Azul, about a program that hopes to promote literacy and a sense on community in East Harlem. Then we see how African-inspired fashion is adding some flare to the streets of Brooklyn.
