It's difficult to imagine a society where everywhere you go, you have to fear for your life, simply because of what you believe in. But for one man, it was his reality until he received asylum in the United States. He lives in Morgantown, and you can hear his story on West Virginia Morning.
His name is Teewende Sandwidi. He speaks seven languages, including four African tribal dialects, along with French, English and German. He's from Burkina Faso, a western landlocked country in Africa just north of Ghana and the Ivory Coast. More than 15 million people live there.
