All Things Considered
Our 9 month series, New Hampshire's Immigration Story explored just that... the vast history of who came to New Hampshire, when they came, why they came, the challenges they faced once they landed on Granite State soil and the contributions that they brought to our state. The Exchange, Word of Mouth, and our News Department looked at the issue of immigration from its first arrivals to the newest refugees calling New Hampshire home.We saw how immigration affects our economy, health care, education system, culture and our current system of law. We also looked at what's going on in New Hampshire today, as we uncovered the groups, societies and little known people who are making an impact all over the state.Funding for NH's Immigration Story is brought to you in part by: New Hampshire Humanities Council, Norwin S. and Elizabeth N.

Speaking Up About Violence In A "Forgotten" Country


It may be the largest war in the world that we don’t hear about. The death toll of what is now called the Great War of Africa likely stretches into the millions.

Among those personally affected by that war is Manchester resident Collette Ramazani, who goes by Coco. She saw the violence firsthand, survived rape and HIV and came to the United States. Her story is the basis of the new novel Tell This To My Mother, by Joseph E. Mwantuali, who teaches French and African literature at Hamilton College in New York.

Coco Ramazani and Joseph E. Mwantuali talk with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about the book and about the situation in Congo.
