D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray (D) joins Kojo, Tom Sherwood and Mike DeBonis in the studio.
In the 1990s, the town of Clarkston, Georgia became an unlikely refugee resettlement center. As scores of families from the world’s war zones descended on the town, one new arrival decided to create a youth soccer team to unite refugee children. Join Kojo as we hear the story of that team — dubbed the “Fugees” by its members — and how its members adapted to life in the U.S.
