Valley Edition - August 21, 2020 - A Hmong Leader's Legacy, The 19th Amendment Turns 100

VE2020-08-21.jpg

On this week’s Valley Edition: A well known Hmong filmmaker who documented the lives of Hmong communities all over Asia died of COVID-19 in July. With his funeral this week in Fresno, his family recalls his legacy. 

Plus, a century after white women gained the right to vote, we explore the history of the 19th Amendment, and how it changed the U.S. forever. 

We also hear from a young mother in Bakersfield whose son has a rare genetic disorder. What’s it like to care for him during the pandemic when the supplies he needs to survive are scarce? 

Listen to those stories and more on the podcast above.
