Here at Making it in America, we look at the universal quest for a better life, and how we continuously strive for more. But when it comes to the heart of the American story, things get a little more complicated.
The show "Our America with Lisa Ling" on OWN takes a look at the diverse personal stories in our country. Lisa and her team explore how various sub-cultures live life and get by in America.
In an effort to better understand the variety of struggles and triumphs the people in this country face, we asked Lisa to stop by and share what she's learned about our diverse people.
You can keep up with Lisa on twitter @lisaling and by using #OurAmerica.
