Ways of Being Here is a collection of stories by African-Australian writers showcasing a diaspora that receives little attention in contemporary Australian writing. The four writers, Rafeif Ismail, Yirga Gelaw Woldeyes, Tinashe Jakwa, and Yuot Alaak, trace their lineage to Sudan, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, and South Sudan, respectively, and it is their strong connection to their homelands, culture and memories that drive their own individual stories. Inclusivity within communities is definitely a theme running through all the stories, each highlighting the issue of acceptance in their own poignant way. Come listen to author, Tinashe Jakwe, share excepts from the book and the storeis of her homeland. (credit Right Now Org)
