The New York Times investigates Fauyiza Kasinga, a woman who fled her African village to escape ritual circumcision only to be locked up for two years in detention centers by the Immigration Service. The series pieces together the intimate family dynamics of a complicated African clan to trace the trajectory of one refugee's exile, and to show the very private decisions that make up the history of a woman who has become a public American immigrant. (April 15 - Sept. 11, 1996)
