Bhutanese-Nepali Refugees in Central Ohio
More than 20,000 Bhutanese-Nepali refugees have settled in Ohio since the 1990s. As they've integrated into Columbus and the surrounding communities, their stories have become intertwined with the history of central Ohio.
One documentary photographer has documented 30 of their journeys with the help of a writer for an exhibit opening this month. Join us today as we discuss the experiences of the Columbus Bhutanese-Nepali refugee community.
