Stuck Here: African Immigrants Tell Their Stories


Stuck Here is a collection of interviews with African immigrants in America as well as insightful analysis of their lives and experiences. The reader will develop awareness of factors that influence African men and women to migrate to the United States, relocating thousands of miles from their home countries where family and friends are left behind. Such factors include living in Rwanda during the infamous genocide and being the only one to survive a savage slaughter; residing in Zimbabwe before and after independence; living in South Africa during and after Apartheid; and much more. Read Stuck Here to discover how these immigrants adjust to life in the United States and to appreciate the sacrifices and struggles these individuals have endured while trying to survive in a new and challenging environment as they seek to improve their lives.

In Stuck Here, Dr. Opiyo gives voice to these representative subjects, enabling them to candidly tell their own unique stories. And they are indeed intriguing stories of mixed emotions full of anecdotal humor and occasional undeniable despair and daunting dilemmas. But most importantly, they are narratives of courage, hope, and determination.
