On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Abi Ishola, we highlight a new short film that explores the generation of young Puerto Ricans who are under employed and out of work. We learn about a society of black stamp collectors that owes its existence in part to legendary Olympian Jesse Owens. Then we profile an artist who has turned her love of coffee into art.
