On today’s Underreported, we’ll examine how recent clashes in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo threaten the regional stability of central Africa. Then, we’ll head closer to home to learn about why Brooklyn's Newtown Creek oil spill is far worse than anyone originally thought. Also, Edwidge Danticat on what it was like for her family to leave Haiti for New York. And a South African perspective on the African-American experience – from slavery to the 2004 election.
