Spring Pledge Drive beings! Tonight MinneCulture features three shorts from our 10,000 Fresh Voices series:

1. The sisterhood of the traveling scarves / Dylan Peers McCoy
Tucked away on the second floor of the African Development Center in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, is a tiny thrift shop called the Sisterhood Boutique. The shop is a dream come true for the founders—a group of young East African women who call themselves the Sisterhood of the Traveling Scarves. After meeting and planning for nearly two years at the Brian Coyle Community Center, the high school entrepreneurs opened their store in February 2014.

2. Family’s artistic creativity spans multiple generations / Manda Lillie
The sudden and dramatic regression of Monica Moses’ development in the early years of her life alarmed her mother and grandmother. They watched as the toddler lost her ability to talk, walk and make eye contact. They sought help, and when Monica was diagnosed with Autism, they moved forward with treatment and therapy. Today Monica is a happy 17-year-old and part of a multi-talented, multi-generational family who share creative genes in the visual and literary arts.

3. Abdi Elmi’s unique distinction / Britta Greene
Abdi Elmi is the only court-certified Somali interpreter in the country. He lives here in Minnesota, home to the largest Somali population in the United States, and he—unsurprisingly—keeps a full caseload. KFAI producer Britta Greene brings us this story about Abdi Elmi and the challenges of interpreting at the highest levels.
