Aminatta Forna On PBS News Hour

Posted in Announcement

PBS News Hour recently featured Aminatta Forna in a segment entitled ‘The power of your suffering is in how you tell your story.’

The description of the segment reads: “Writer Aminatta Forna is often asked if she was traumatized by personal tragedy and national turmoil. To Forna, the ability to shape your own narrative, rather than having others shape it for you, is ultimately what matters most; being told you are irrevocably damaged becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Forna offers her humble opinion on talking about trauma.”

Congratulations, Aminatta!
