Event description
Hear about life as a refugee from Mondiant Dogon, a Bagogwe Tutsi born in Congo. Signed copies of his book available.

About this event

"Those We Throw Away Are Diamonds offers an immersive, riveting look at one Bagogwe man’s singular journey from war in Congo to safety, in which good and evil are relative when war offers no good choices to anyone, when safety is an illusion, and when forgiveness is fraught." Jessica Goudeau 

Hear about life as a refugee from Mondiant Dogon, a Bagogwe Tutsi born in Congo, when he talks with the Reverend John Morehouse.

Rarely do refugees get to tell their own stories. But through his writing, Mondiant took control of his own story and spoke up for forever refugees everywhere. As Mondiant once wrote in a poem, “Those we throw away are diamonds.”
