We talk about this inter-ally tension with University of Michigan history professor, Juan Cole. Author Ben Lawrence gives us an inside look at Dadaab, the world’s largest refugee camp in Kenya. Plus, for World History Minute, historian John L. Schmidt tells the story of an important Vatican treaty signed on this day in 1929.
Global Activist, Amy Maglio, was living in Senegal and decided she must do something to help more girls get into school and stay there.
