FARGO — Annie Prafcke of Fargo is about as upper Midwest as you can get.
(While Prairie Public Television is in Fargo, because it serves a portion of Minnesota, it is part of this project.)
Prafcke decided to write the letter after her mother, Carol Prafcke, saw an ad on Prairie Public TV about it.
“I knew they saw me as different, too,” she writes in her “Dear Minnesota” letter.
Yang says Prafcke’s letter also points to the larger story that immigration stories aren’t happy and triumphant all the time.
