We take you to literal and metaphorical islands. We start by looking at an often ignored situation in the Dominican Republic that’s left thousands of people stateless. We also examine their sexual education system, which is tied to religion. In Cuba, organic farms are changing local economies. We visit Hawaii to learn how Latinos—the fastest-growing ethnic group in the state—fit in. A Latino moves to North Dakota, an island of economic development. Peace Corps volunteers learn to overcome cultural isolation. And a journalist visits Cuba and learns to forgive her father.
