Episode Details

Original tape date: May 15, 2017.

First aired: June 7, 2017.

On this edition of Independent Sources hosted by Garry Pierre Pierre we tackle the issue of literacy in NYC. We zoom in on a program that’s helping spur children’s imagination by introducing them to authors. We talk about book deserts and the effort to get public school children in poor neighborhoods to read more. Then we visit the New York African Film Festival and reflect on how that event is taking root amongst French-speaking Africans in Harlem.
