Today, we head to Nigeria where rallies are being held in major cities, marking the one-year anniversary of the kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls by Boko Haram. We'll speak with one of the organizers of the original Bring Back Our Girls campaign. Plus, there's a long history of fusion cuisine along a part of the US-Mexican border — but it's not what you think: Lisa Morehouse brings us a story on Chinese food with Mexican flavors. Plus, the famous US Navy flying team, the Blue Angels, have a new pilot. We have HER story.

In China, the detention of five women's rights activists has become something of a cause célèbre for American politicians, including Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Today, all five were released. Also, the pope made news over the weekend when he marked the 100th anniversary of the massacre of Armenians by Ottoman Turks — "the first genocide of the 20th century." And Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made a splash in Armenia too; and we speak with a reporter who is following them around the country.

Also, we check in on a London revival of the play, "Our American Cousin." You might have heard of it; it was the play that President Lincoln was watching when he was assassinated 150 years ago. Plus, we recall the days when the US and the Soviet Union were racing to outdo each other in space. A British group called Public Service Broadcasting has a new album that sets archival footage from the space race to music.

Why is Cuba on the US list of state sponsors of terrorism? We answer that question as the Obama Administration weighs taking Havana off the list. Also, we hear about a "little red app" launched to extol the virtues of China's leader Xi Jinping. Plus, we meet a Yemeni American who managed to flee the violence in Yemen. It wasn't easy — he did it by boarding a small boat and crossing the Red Sea.
