Speaking Up About Violence In A "Forgotten" Country
It may be the largest war in the world that we don’t hear about. The death toll of what is now called the Great War of Africa likely stretches into the millions.
Among those personally affected by that war is Manchester resident Collette Ramazani, who goes by Coco. She saw the violence firsthand, survived rape and HIV and came to the United States. Her story is the basis of the new novel Tell This To My Mother, by Joseph E. Mwantuali, who teaches French and African literature at Hamilton College in New York.
Coco Ramazani and Joseph E. Mwantuali talk with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about the book and about the situation in Congo.
