Kadir Natho, a distinguished author, Circassian activist and one of the founders of the Circassian Benevolent Association, takes us back in time to when the first Circassians arrived to the United States in 1923. This episode was recorded in his Manhattan apartment just 8 days before his passing. We would like to thank Amo Kadir for his tireless efforts of encouraging all generations to continue preserving the Circassian culture.
