Voices from Uganda. African Voices Series.
Warner, Rachel, Ed.
This multi-language collection of autobiographical writing from Ugandan 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 historical background on Uganda, the collection is divided into the following sections and each section has several writings: (1) "Memories of Uganda"; (2) "Life in Uganda"; (3) "War"; (4) "My Life"; (5) "Leaving Uganda"; (6) "Life in Britain"; and (7) "Hopes for the Future." Includes a resources section that lists books, briefing papers, fact sheets, materials on refugees, and useful addresses. (BT)
