Interview with Omar Rashada, author of the book, “From Tears to Glory: The Stories of Our Lives”. This is Omar’s debut novel, and it's a story about six strangers from North Philadelphia who have been selected to participate at the ‘Cultural Down’s Center’ first cultural awareness group. The purpose of this group is to allow participants to share their personal morals, values, and beliefs, as well as to learn the morals, values, and beliefs of others. The group meets for four sessions as they discuss controversial issues that have a profound effect in our communities. Tensions flare among some group members when the topics of politics, colorism, leadership, and gender come up. Two of the group members reunite with family members after one finds out about an unbearable family secret as the other is reuniting with his family member after being a victim of an act of violence.
