Voices from Sudan. African Voices Series.
Warner, Rachel, Ed.
This multi-language collection of autobiographical writing from Sudanese children and young adults who are living in Britain as refugees 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 a "Factbox" (country introduction) and an introduction for teachers that provides a historical background for Sudan, the collection is divided into the following sections and each section has several writings: (1) "Memories of Sudan"; (2) "Koc Mac Thok" ("Family"); (3) "My Life in Sudan and Britain"; (4) "Yaang Ku Tong" ("Oppression and War"); (5) "Life in Britain"; (6) "Piir Cit Piir E Raan Ci Weike Rieng Wei" ("Life as a Refugee"); and (7) "Hopes for the Future." Includes a resources section that lists books, briefing papers, fact sheets, materials on refugees, and useful addresses. (BT)
