Description

This program is based on Kimbrough’s book “The Outsiders” (with Mourtazo Chadyev) which focuses on people of “other” cultures who have come to Nebraska. Among those featured are:-Arturo Coto, who went from being minister of health in El Salvador to hoeing beans in western Nebraska to becoming one of the top officials in the Nebraska Department of Health.-Leola Bullock, an African-American who came to Lincoln in the 1950’s and has become one of the nation’s foremost civil rights leaders.-Rauf Aliovsadzade, a world-class violinist and chess master who left Baku because he was married to a woman from the “wrong” country and who has become a member of the Lincoln Symphony—and an American citizen.
