In A Moonless, Starless Sky Okeowo weaves together four narratives that form 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.
This debut book by one of America's most acclaimed young journalists illuminates the inner lives of ordinary people doing the extraordinary - lives that are too often hidden, underreported, or ignored by the rest of the world.

Amazing and Inspirational Stories<br />
So many beautiful examples of strong and corageous people. The narater brings the author's words to life so skillfully that you might forget that you are not actually listening to the people telling their own stories. Most importantly, the author brings the reality of the struggles to light. There but for the Grace of God go I.
