Using ordinary people's stories to document the Biafran War.
Chika Oduah is a Nigerian-American journalist on a mission to document African history through the testimony of people who witnessed events. She's of Igbo origin and has been recording voices from the Biafran perspective, which she says is under-documented. Newsday's Karnie Sharp asked her how her documentation would be different from those written in the past?
