A Sense of Home: From Sudan to Nebraska

Nebraska Folklife Network

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.
