The "Invisible Heroes" of Columbus

Jul 20, 2011

Columbus, Ohio is home to the second largest settlement of Somali refugees in the country. This community is quite large, but has not received much mainstream media attention. This has caused some Somali activists to refer to their population as “invisible.â€? Today, on All Sides, we’ll discuss a program that addresses the presence of the estimated 15,000 Somali immigrants in Columbus, specifically Somali youth, called “Invisible Heroes.â€? Guests:

  • Ahmed Adan (President of Somali Media and Cultural Organization)
  • Ismahan Isse (Somali Community Activist)
  • Mohamed Mohamed (“Learn With Meâ€? Member)
