Sonic wanders, from 'Re:sound'

Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park in London, England.

Join us as "Re:sound" returns to the airwaves in June and July. This week we're going on three “soundwalks” that meander at the pace of real life.

First, the 4700 block of Liberty Heights Avenue is a portrait of survival and adaptability. It's a self-governed, informal economy where the currency is respect. Space is shared by merchants, churches, longtime residents, and drug dealers. Immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, West Africa, and Korea have set up shops alongside a dwindling number of African American-owned businesses. Trust is earned here, not given lightly.

We’ll also hear more from Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park in London and from the village of Shaktoolik, Alaska.

Join us on Sunday, June 11 at 7 p.m. for the latest from "Re:sound."

If you missed the broadcast on-air, you can listen online.
