Tuesday, May 17: Feet in Two Worlds: Immigrants in a Global City
Salt Lake City, UT – Join us at 11:00 a.m. when Doug talks to producer John Rudolph and two contributing reporters from the Globalization project work "Feet in Two Worlds." Tune in at 7:00 p.m. to listen to the entire hour of the documentary.
"For generations, immigrants who came to the US were forced to make a clean break with home. Today, with cell phones, the Internet, videoconferencing technology, faxes and cheap air fares, many immigrants remain in constant contact with their home countries. For them the key to survival is not just learning how to live in America, but learning to live in two places at once. Hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt (Angela's Ashes, Tis) and set in New York's immigrant neighborhoods, Feet in Two Worlds features stories by reporters from the city's ethnic newspapers, as well as WNYC reporters who regularly cover immigrant communities. Most of these stories have only been available to readers of small ethnic newspapers. Now public radio listeners have a chance to get an insider's perspective on immigrant experiences in one of the world's most culturally diverse cities."
