Clarkston: Small Town, Big Heart - A Sagal Radio Documentary
"Clarkston, Georgia is a place of many faces, many languages and many stories. War and hardship have torn African communities apart while on the other side of the world in the United States the trials of learning a new language and culture have brought them together again. A new life in America maybe be difficult for East African refugees, but one thing's for certain, the people of Clarkston are always grateful to be able to share a piece of their community with you."
This 22-minute documentary about a sleepy southern town and the refugees who now call it home was produced by Erin Single and Hussien Mohamed of Sagal Radio.
