Culture Lessons: Stories of Students at Manchester Central

Manchester Central is New Hampshire's largest and oldest public high school, and its most diverse. Refugee and immigrant teenagers from nearly 70 countries attend classes at Central. Independent producer, John Rudolph, and the staff of NHPR spent several months gathering the stories of students and teachers to find out what diversity means to them, culminating in the week-long series Culture Lessons.

Culture Lessons was funded by grants from the Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation - Manchester Region.
