AFRICAN AUTHOR ADDRESS MIGRANT WORKER CONDITIONS IN THE MIDDLE EAST


'ALMOST A VIRGIN' (Short Story + Audio)

'Alex Nderitu in “Almost a Virgin” responds to the numerous harrowing cases of mistreatment - and in some cases murder - of migrant African workers in the Gulf States. Using two fictional female characters, he shows how unsuspecting migrants are attracted to the Gulf, some of the experiences they go through, the failure of systems that would protect them, and some of the things that can be done to stem this modern-day, perfumed, slave trade.' - Editorial, Issue 1, OneBlackBoyLikeThatReview
