GoGo Mama

GoGo Mama, by award-winning foreign correspondent Sally Sara, intimately profiles the lives of 12 African women. These profiles include a genocide survivor from Rwanda, a pygmy from the Congo, a former child soldier from Liberia and a grandmother fighting AIDS. 

This book is a journey across Africa, in all its complexity - from the townships of Johannesburg, to the back alleys of Zanzibar; from the frontline of the war in the Sudan, to the nightclubs of Cairo. It is a vivid, illuminating and often haunting composite picture of an extraordinary continent, in the words of the people who know it best.
