Join Cherise as she sits down with Yeonmi Park, a North Korean defector who escaped the authoritarian state when she was fourteen years old. Her journey from North Korea, through China, to South Korea, and eventually to the United States was a perilous one that you can read about in her earlier book “In Order to Live.” With the memories of the regime she grew up under in North Korea still on her mind, Yeonmi Park has taken note of some of the eerily similar behaviors she has seen in the United States both on college campus and off. Her time at Columbia University encouraged her to write her most recent book “While Time Remains,” where Yeonmi delivers a warning for Americans by highlighting the dangerous hypocrisies, mob tactics, groupthink, and anti-free speech sentiments in the name of social justice.
