A couple years ago on her first Mother's Day, Harlem Radio Rookie Janelle Lewis shared with WNYC listeners her first experience with motherhood. She even shared the sounds of herself giving birth to her daughter Jandora. For Father's Day, 24-year-old Janelle contemplates how different these two holidays are in her household.
On May 12, 2002, Janelle Lewis' commentary about giving birth to her first daughter Jandora aired as part of a Mother's Day Special on WNYC’s Radiolab. Right after Janelle gives birth, she calls out to her mom for the tape-recorder.
The Rookies share their thoughts about the World Trade Center tragedy of September 11th.
Janelle Lewis is 19-years-old and her report tracks her lifelong quest: figuring out whether she's American or Trini, or both - and why.
