Remember "Bring Back Our Girls"? It was the slogan, tweeted around the world, for a campaign to rescue more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram last April.
For a time, everyone paid attention. With little new information coming out, though, many people forgot that most of the girls are still missing. But 57 of the students did manage to escape early on. Twenty-one of them wound up at the American University of Nigeria on full scholarships.
Joshua Hammer, a freelance journalist and frequent contributor to Smithsonian Magazine, paid the girls a visit. He speaks with Here & Now's Lisa Mullins.
