The Newcomers and the Transplants

Our third Agent of Change is a group of people, the newcomers and the transplants. It comprises two interviews, one with Helen Thorpe, author of a new book about refugee and immigrant teenagers at South High School, and the other with Zena Ballas, creator of a new digital archive of transplant profiles.

You can learn more about Helen’s book, The Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom, here.

And you can find Zena’s project here.

Music for this episode provided by D.A. Evosirch. He’s @noirguitarsuperstar on Instagram.

Our theme song is “Minnow” by Felix Fast4ward.
