An incredibly moving memoir! The author, Sandra Uwiringiyimana writes about her survival of the Gatumba massacre, her eventual immigration to America, and her path to activism. I don't usually read memoirs, but I finished this in one day. The author writes about the good and the bad, which I loved because it broke down the stereotypes often associated with "Africa", stereotypes built by Westerners. This is great for readers who love memoirs and even readers who don't usually pick up non-fiction - the writing draws you in. Just like I AM MALALA, How Dare the Sun Rise is powerful and inspiring, a must read.
