Doug Doyle for WBGO

WBGO commentator and Seton Hall professor Mildred Antenor grew up in an immigrant community in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.  She witnessed and experienced the hardships that immigrants in her vicinity faced everyday.

In her new book The Gladioli Are Invisible: A Memoir, Antenor vividly and honestly talks about the adversity she saw, such as drug abuse, mental illness, alcoholism and domestic violence.

She recently sat down with WBGO News Director Doug Doyle to discuss her emotional journey through her memoir.
