Africa’s Child – Memoir

Author Name: Maria Nhambu

Book Title: Africa’s Child

Book Synopsis: Africa’s Child is told through the eyes of a biracial girl growing up in an orphanage in East Africa. She has no idea of her identity or family of origin, much less her tribe. She faces challenges as she makes her own way finding strength in her love of education and dance. This compelling coming of age story deals with issues of race, abandonment, love and loss.

Author Bio: Born in Tanzania, East Africa, Nhambu (she prefers to be known by her Sukuma name) sustained her spirit through dance and kept alive her dream of further education in the United States. There she created a popular workout based on African dance (Aerobics With Soul ®).
