On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we discuss how your zip code can determine your life expectancy in New York City and how the gap between rich and poor is widening. We learn more about an NYU center that’s offering solace to its Muslim students during this time of growing Islamophobia. Then we speak to the editor of a new book about the legendary abolitionist, Frederick Douglass.
