A Sense of Home: From Sudan to Nebraska

Nebraska Folklife Network
11/19/2012

Thousands of refugees from Sudan live right here in Nebraska, more than in any other place outside Sudan. For many of them, their journey from a country torn by civil war to life in a strange new country with a completely different culture has been harrowing and difficult, to say the least.  They have embraced Nebraska as an adopted home, but will always carry with them memories and a longing for their homeland.  This feeling is one we can all easily relate to, and it is the subject of this podcast!  Enjoy.

Featuring music by:

  • Jackie Santino, Lincoln, NE
  • Roger and Sharon Kenaston, Lyons, NE
