Over the past 17 years an estimated 14,000 children have been kidnapped and forced to fight for the Lord’s Resistance Army in Northern Uganda. As part of this week’s Underreported series, Angelina Atyam, an activist for the kidnapped children discusses the separation and reunion with her daughter. Then, James Watt from the Metropolitan Museum of Art joins us for a preview of the major exhibit, China: Dawn of a Golden Age, 200-750 AD. Next, John Leland looks into the origins style with his exploration of what it means to be cool in Hip: The History. And Francisco Goldman shares his new novel, The Divine Husband, set in 19th century Central America.
