Escape From OpressionAirs Friday, July 26 at 7:30 PM Looking to Thanksgiving, this week's Wyoming Chronicle features two stories of hope and hardship. One that begins with a long journey that started in a Civil War half way around the world - Bertine Bahige, a former refugee from Congo, shares the tragedy and blessings of his survival.
The discussion about refugees and asylum seekers around the world continues in the Studio with Bertine and Suzan Pritchett, University of Wyoming Visiting Professor and Co-Director of Center for International Human Rights Law & Advocacy.
We close with a second story, one that starts and ends at home here in America - the recount of a historic Mormon trek of faith that is still honored today.
You can also stream the program online at WyomingPBS.org Friday evening.Check out the Wyoming Chronicle website for past shows on Wyoming topics that include Drought, Healthcare, Hydraulic Fracturing, Veterans, Indian Culture and the list goes on.
