Sam Totten returned from his most recent jaunt to east Africa with a jagged, twisted hunk of metal that conveys a sense of the dangers people face there.
Sam Totten has made four trips in the past five years to the Nuba Mountains in south Sudan:
July 2010: Interviewed internally displaced persons (IDP) from Darfur in a small camp in Nuba Mountains. These and other interviews appeared in Totten’s book, “A Documentary and Oral History of the Darfur Genocide.”
December 2010-January 2011: Continued to conduct interviews with IDPs from Darfur in the Nuba Mountains IDP camp. Began conducting interviews with survivors of the genocide by attrition perpetrated in the 1990s in the Nuba Mountains.
December 2012-January 2013: Primarily hauled food to two points in the Nuba Mountains: Kurchee and Kauda. Continued interviewing survivors of genocide by attrition.
December 2014: Hauled food to four different points in the Nuba Mountains.
