Please check out my show Indigenous Voices/Voces Indígenas with my co-host Esubiyii. The topic is still Creating Community for this week and we are still trying to get Iya Oyasegun, Sr. to talk about her work with the Elders Council in Jackson, MS. Also, our featured community of the week is the Twin Cities. Here is an excerpt from the book: Creating Africa in America by Jacqueline Copeland-Carson "Across the street from the CWC was the Lagos International Market and an African music shop. Farther down the block was a Somali recording studio that also sold Somali music and was becoming a community meeting place. Several shops down was an African bookstore owned by a Kenyan immigrant. In an office across from the CWC on the second floor of a drugstore was the Association for Hmong Women, which used the CWCs space for community meetings, youth gatherings, and folk dance classes. There was a Mexican Restaurant and an Indian curry house on the same block. About half a block from the CWC's offices was Ingebretsen's, a well-known store established in the neighborhood for about eighty years, specializing in Scandinavian foods and handicrafts. A couple of blocks up from this store on the same boulevard were various specialty shops patronized by an international clientele including Latino Catholics, African people of various backgrounds, as well as an interethnic group of White American Wiccans, that is, witches, many of whom identified themselves as feminists reconnecting with the lost healing traditions of pre-Christian Europe."
