This Much I Can Tell You: Stories of Courage and Hope from Refugees in Minnesota
In the pages of This Much I Can Tell You, the voices of eighteen new Minnesotans, refugees and asylees from nine different countries, share stories of fear, courage, sorrow, and hope for new futures in the United States. The collection includes stories from Somalia, Liberia, Burma (Myanmar), Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Bhutan, and Cameroon.
The storytellers in this book are all people who have connected to services at MCC Refugee Services and shared their stories there. The intent of the collection is twofold: to tell the stories of an otherwise underrepresented population and to give the refugee storytellers an opportunity to own their stories with pride and dignity, and in so-doing, experience healing.
