The silence of the spirits by Wilfried N'Sondé( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in French and English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the limits of empathy and forgiveness? How can someone with a shameful past find a new path that allows for both healing and reckoning? When Clovis and Christelle find themselves face-to-face on a train heading to the outskirts of Paris, their unexpected encounter propels them on a cathartic journey toward understanding the other, mediated by their respective histories of violence. Clovis, a young undocumented African, struggles with the pain and shame of his brutal childhood, abusive exploits as a child soldier, and road to exile. Christelle, a young French nurse, has her own dark experiences but translates her suffering into an unusual capacity for empathy, forgiveness, and reconciliation

A nameless young man lives in the housing projects outside of Paris. When he was a child, his parents moved with him from the Congo to France, hoping in vain to escape poverty and violence. His best friend, Drissa, is in a psychiatric hospital and now Mireille, his girlfriend, the woman with whom he has shared his childhood and hopes, has left him to reconnect with her Jewish roots in Israel. During a night out to drown the pain of his heartache, there is a fight with a policeman, the policeman dies, and the young man is arrested and taken to jail. Between police beatings and abrupt interrogations, his memory becomes his sole ally to escape from the exiguous space in which he is confined. Half-conscious and delirious, he reflects on his journey from the land of his ancestors to his life in the projects with Drissa and Mireille

"Behind the bars on her window, Rosa Maria dreams of sunshine, love, calm, and leaving the city where she lives with her family. She suffers her father's beatings, hides her femininity behind shapeless clothing, and pines for the beautiful Jason as she awaits her opportunity to flee. Meanwhile, her older brother is found dead in a nearby parking lot, and the neighborhood explodes in a riot against the police. Rosa Maria resolves to act before she is devoured by family intrigues and despair. Wilfried N'Sonde's powerful voice creates a palpable sense of the absence of hope and the social and racial isolation that pervade the Paris project, even as he never abandons the expansive capacity of individuals to dream of better lives beyond a seemingly hopeless reality."--Publisher's description

Congo tales : told by the people of Mbomo = Racontés par les gens de Mbomo /c photographs by Pieter Henket; edited by Stefanie Plattner and Eva Vonk by Pieter Henket( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Congo Basin in Central Africa harbors approximately one quarter of the world?s rainforest. In the heart of this forest is Odzala-Kokoua National Park, an ecological wonderland that is home to untold numbers of rare gorillas, forest elephants, and birds. It is also home to people who have lives vastly different from much of the rest of the world. 0In this photographic series, Pieter Henket presents images of the children of Odzala-Kokoua telling the oral history of the Congo in enchanting and creative ways. Shot over the course of a month, Henket documented the children of this remote region as they designed, planned, created costumes for, and acted out a series of myths - about their tribes, their landscape, and the animals and plants that they live among. Their stories will educate others unfamiliar with a way of life that is so completely in harmony with nature. Filled with vibrant images that highlight the area?s magnificent flora and fauna, this photographic project, which was three years in the planning and execution, offers an exciting opportunity to learn about nature and the environment and it delivers an optimistic message about trust, cooperation, and conservation for the next generation of policy makers.00Exhibition: Museum Barberini, Potsdam, Germany (30.6-21.10.2018)

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lorsque l'Afrique apprend que la Coupe du monde de football aura lieu sur ses terres en 2010, c'est l'explosion de joie. Pour cette occasion, Abdourahman A Waberi, écrivain djiboutien de renom, réunit des nouvelles sur le thème de ce sport, véritable institution sur le continent. Les six nouvelles que nous proposons dans ce recueil dessinent le portrait de la société et de la jeunesse africaines, sur fond de stade ou de terrain improvisé. Rédigées par de talentueux auteurs originaires des quatre coins du continent, comme la Mauricienne Ananda Devi ou le Congolais Alain Mabanckou, elles se font l'écho de leurs univers réalistes et attachants.
