On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we see how music, movies, photos and paintings are challenging biases and changing people’s lives. We learn about a music program that’s helping veterans deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We focus on an initiative in the Bronx that’s getting community kids to zoom in on their immigrant neighbors. Then we highlight the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s effort to highlight Latinos' place in American art history.
