Music with Minnesotans: Bondo Nyembwe

To the students at Academia Cesar Chavez in St. Paul, he is Mr. Nyembwe. To almost everyone else, he is simply Bondo. Bondo Nyembwe is the executive director of the school. It's a job he loves. His ideas about the power of education were formed in part from personal experiences living in a refugee camp. He shares stories of success and a brilliant personal playlist, too. Bondo joins Steve Staruch on Music with Minnesotans.
