Unlearning a dictatorship

Making the invisible visible: When Nana-Jo Ndow’s father was abducted and killed, it set her family on a long journey to find answers
#TheComb

Making the invisible visible: After her father was abducted and killed in the Gambia, Nana-Jo Ndow, and her cousin Sirra started an organisation to raise awareness of the issue and set up a memorialisation centre. Now, survivors are starting to heal by sharing their stories and young people can learn about human rights. It’s usually men who are forcibly disappeared during dictatorships but women who are left behind to try to pick up the pieces - and they often risk their lives searching for answers.
Thanks for listening. Let us know what you think.
