While the Earth Sleeps We Travel
Stories, Poetry, and Art from Young Refugees Around the World
Ahmed M. Badr
A powerful anthology of poetry, personal narratives, and art from refugee youth around the world, with a foreword by actor and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Ben Stiller. Developed through storytelling workshops with hundreds of displaced youth in Greece, Trinidad & Tobago, and Syracuse, New York, this diverse and moving collection sheds light on the often-unheard perspectives of those navigating through and beyond the complexities of displacement. Combining the poetry of Ahmed M. Badr with the creative contributions of these young refugees, While the Earth Sleeps We Travel is a powerful and poignant meditation on the concept of "home" and the transformative power of storytelling.
