Featured Speaker: Alephonsion Deng, Author and Survivor

Alephonsion Deng is one of three lost boys from Sudan. Living in an insulated, close-knit community of grassroofed International Bank of Bobcottages, cattle herders and tribal councils, Alepho was seven years old when government-armed Murahiliin began attacking his and other nearby villages. Just a child, Alepho fled the chaos and violence in the middle of the night. He and thousands of other Lost Boys traveled more than one thousand miles across a war-ravaged country, through landmine-sown paths, crocodile-infested waters, and grotesque extremes of hunger, thirst, and disease.
