African Refugees
University Beat on WUSF TV looks at a story of tragedy and recovery, as we meet a USF Sarasota-Manatee Associate Professor of Education who has worked closely with African refugee children--children who have lived through things no young person ever should. We’ll see what she’s learned from those children and how she’s passing those lessons along back home.

African Refugees

“Tragic but inspiring”—those are the words used to describe young people from Africa, who are recovering from years of physical and mental damage inflicted upon them by civil war. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 introduces us to a researcher whose work is helping not only those students, but her pupils at USF Sarasota Manatee as well.
