EPISODE 13: When Will I Be Black What does it mean to a child that someone is white, black, North American, African, Muslim or Christian? In this episode, we get a glimpse of life at the crossroads of culture, race and religion through the eyes of children. After getting to know Somali refugees in Minnesota, Rachel, together with her husband and two small children, packed up and moved to Somaliland and later to Djibouti, where she gave birth to another child who has been growing up a native of Africa. Having faced many differences in culture, traditions, race and beliefs, Rachel shares delightful stories of how she, and especially her children, have adjusted to being at home in Djibouti. Marcia and Lisle mull over the valuable lessons to be learned from Rachel’s experiences and those of her children.
