The Wider Image: South Sudanese youth turn to art to push for peace
Ayak Chol Deng, 31, an epidemiologist, spoken word poet, activist, and a founding member of Ana Taban, poses for a photograph at her home in Juba, South Sudan, April 20, 2017. Deng was born in a refugee camp in Gambela, briefly lived in Cuba as a child, and then studied and lived in Kharoum, Sudan and Nairobi, Kenya. She is divorced and a mother of three. "I hope for better serviced institutions, better opportunities for youth, a country where I don't need to be from a specific tribe," said Deng. In one of her poems, she writes: "Heal this spirit that's broken, piece together pieces of me, my affiliation, or tongue, colour, politics, restore what’s human in me, peace, come find me, enrich this fist choking, un-taint my disputes, resonating, unhinge my words, elevating, unleash a conciliation, everlasting, peace, come find me."
