Summary
New Yorker staff writer Alexis Okeowo weaves together four narratives of ordinary people doing the extraordinary, forming a powerful tapestry of modern Africa: a young couple, kidnap victims of Joseph Kony's LRA; a Mauritanian waging a lonely campaign against modern-day slavery; a women's basketball team flourishing amid war-torn Somalia; and a vigilante who takes up arms against the extremist group Boko Haram
Summary
A staff writer for the New Yorker describes the true stories of Africans who are bravely resisting the fundamentalism sweeping their country, including a women's basketball team in Somalia, a vigilante against Boko Haram, and kidnapping victims of Joseph Kony’s LRA
