Lost and Found in America: Story of New African Immigrants in the United States
Tokunbo Awoshakin. 2007.
Lost & Found in America is the story of Akobo Adele, an immigrant from Africa who, after the events of September 11, 2001, got caught up in both personal and socio-political circumstances that changed his perceptions about U.S. and transformed his relationships and well being. Lost & Found in America explores the multi-faceted circumstances of new African immigrants in the U.S. and provides unique lenses through which folks from Africa see and analyze events in the country, including how they deal with racism, expectations from home, love, romance, the African-American sub-cultures and the need to find a sense of place.
