A Walk Across Borders

Produced by

A Walk Across Borders

Saul Flores grew up knowing his mother had made great compromises to move to the U.S. as a Mexican immigrant. After he visited her home town through a school project, Saul made the decision to take a very long, solitary walk, from Quito, Ecuador to Charlotte, N.C. – more than 5,000 miles. He did it to connect physically and emotionally with the experiences of immigrants – and in the process, he learned a lot about his own freedom. Music in this story: Pal Norte and Heading North from the album Residente o Visitante performed by Calle 13 with Orishas

Growing up with Oral Roberts

When Oral Roberts died a year ago today, the televangelist’s legendary work was praised by many and denounced by others. Dick talks with Randy Potts, Oral's grandson, whose complicated relationship with his famous grandpa was made more difficult when Randy realized he was  gay and living in a community that didn’t accept homosexuality.
