This edition: United By Flavors

Episode Details

Original tape date: December 12, 2016.

First aired: December 21, 2016.

On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we highlight a new book that explores the United States’ ethnically diverse history by delving into the origins of eight essential ingredients. We learn about a group of costumed performers who’re instilling more cultural pride in young African Americans by teaching them about the history of African royalty like Cleopatra and King Tut. Then we visit a distillery in the South Bronx that’s making legal Puerto Rican moonshine.
