American Samoa: The Southernmost U.S. Territory with Ashley Spivey

American Samoa: The Southernmost U.S. Territory with Ashley Spivey

While we all grew up learning facts about states in our history and government classes, U.S. territories are often left out of the conversation. Today we go back to fill in those gaps, and Sharon talks with social activist Ashley Spivey about how American Samoa became a U.S. territory. They explore how American Samoa became of interest to the U.S., and how the South Pacific Ocean archipelago is represented in government. Of course, no Sharon Says So episode would be complete without a few fun facts, and Sharon has plenty to share about this tropical territory!
