Good morning. We’re covering the latest on the U.S. effort to evacuate Afghans in Kabul, the extended lockdown in Australia and America’s fast-growing Asian population.

For decades, Abdellah El Gourd’s house in Tangier, Morocco, was the global center of Gnawa music, an art form born from enslaved West Africans. Now, he is fighting to save the historical house, which was abandoned early this year because it was in danger of collapse.

Lives Lived: Don Everly, the elder of the Everly Brothers, the groundbreaking duo and most successful rock act to emerge from Nashville in the 1950s, rivaling Elvis Presley for radio airplay, died. He was 84.

In those three decades, the population has also become more geographically diverse, spreading from a few pockets in coastal cities to Southern suburbs and more rural areas of the Midwest, according to a Times analysis of census data.

“When people think Asians in America, they think California, Hawaii,” said Neil Ruiz, the associate director of race and ethnicity research at Pew Research Center. “But this population is not a West Coast phenomenon. It’s now an American phenomenon.”

Economically, Asian household incomes exceed that of the overall U.S. population. Educational attainment is also higher. But among groups, there is quite a large variation, especially when tied to citizenship status.

Take, for instance, Korean households. Those headed by a person born in the U.S. have a median income of $95,000. For households headed by noncitizens, it’s just $54,000. The gap is even wider for those of Chinese or Taiwanese descent.
