Reviews - What do customers think about From Africa to America: The Journey of a Lost Boy of Sudan?
A Powerful Story Feb 25, 2008
We have been aware of the lost boys for many years but have not known much detail of this epic endeavor until last Fall when Joseph Akol Makeer made one of his first public presentations to our Unitarian Congregation. He is also doing much to help us understand the current plight of the Sudanese as they are now being repatriated from refugee camps after years of displacement.
We are very moved by the sense of responsibility that the Lost Boys, now scattered all over the globe, have for each other, reunited families, those remaining in refugee camps or returning from African expatriation to what little remains in Southern Sudan. Joseph conveys these aspects of their culture and beliefs very well as he tells his personal story of a journey begun in formative childhood years two decades ago.
A powerful story of struggles, loyalty, failures, perseverance and triumphs.
