Radio Camper Ian Olson speaks with the Center for New North Carolinians Director Raleigh Bailey
Raleigh Bailey is the founding director of the Center for New North Carolinians. He and his group work to help new immigrants in North Carolina have access to various resources and services. He sat down with WFDD Radio Camper Ian Olson.

Forsyth Technical Community College hosted a presentation Monday by Saul Flores.
