Voices from Angola = Vozes de Angola. African Voices Series.
Warner, Rachel, Ed.
This dual-language (Portuguese and English) collection of autobiographical writing by refugees from Angolan children and young adults living in Britain is illustrated with photographs and children's drawings and includes comprehensive country introductions. In the collection, young people give their accounts of migration and explore how their identities are changing in their new country. The writings can be a useful resource for teachers, particularly those who want to bring a global dimension to learning. Following the "Factbox" (country introduction) and a general introduction for teachers that provides historical background on Angola, the collection is divided into the following sections and each includes several writings: (1) "Lembrancas de Angola" ("Memories of Angola"); (2)"Familia" ("Family"); (3) "Guerra" ("War"); (4) "Deixando Angola" ("Leaving Angola"); (5) "A Vida na Inglaterra" ("Life in Britain"); and (6)"A Vida de Refugiado" ("Life as a Refugee"). Includes a resources section that lists books, briefing papers, fact sheets, materials on refugees, and useful addresses. (BT)
