From the series, African Experiences of Migration
Discussion Leader: Rosemary Kolich

Ishmael Beah's life in war-torn Sierra Leone did not prepare him for his move to the United States in 1998, where he finished his last two years of high school at the United Nations International School in New York. He went on to earn a degree in political science from Oberlin College and become a member of the Human Rights Watch Children's Rights Division Advisory Committee. His personal experiences now inform his work in addressing children's conditions in countries ravaged by war throughout the world.
