Africa's Child book cover

Africa's Child

Maria Nhambu

"Africa's Child" is a powerful memoir about a mixed-race girl growing up in an orphanage in Tanzania. Enduring abandonment, illnesses, bullying, racial discrimination, and abuse, she perseveres with faith, resilience, and a belief in learning. Through her tenacious pursuit of education and the healing power of African tribal dance, she triumphs over repeated obstacles and injustices. Warmly written with wit and humor, this inspiring book is the first in a three-part memoir that follows her journey to university studies in America on a full scholarship.
