Luol Deng’s emotional trip home to the Sudan
You know Luol Deng is a Chicago Bull and maybe as the star of Great Britain’s national team in basketball.
But he was born in war-torn Sudan. One of the lucky refugees to get out alive and to get a real chance somewhere.
He went back to the Sudan recently, along with a crew from the BBC, who put together a powerful, emotional report on his experiences (thanks to TrueHoop’s Kevin Arnovitz for finding this).
“I know it’s been 20 years since I came home... but I’ve never been in a place where I’ve walked in the street and actually feel home, where I don’t feel like a refugee.”
Really it is a must watch. You’ll be able to see this on BBC America tomorrow.
