By Olivia Straub '12Beginning in 1983, the Northern Sudanese government began launching attacks on Southern villages. Many people died in these vicious attacks; however, one group of people did survive. The Lost Boys of Sudan are a group of 7 to 17 year old boys who walked over 500 miles to escape the violence occurring in their homeland.In fall 2008, members of the Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies course at Colgate University embarked on a collaborative project to understand and interrogate 20th century histories of war and violence, as well as its resolutions. As part of this endeavor, students and faculty analyze and disseminate information about marginalized conflicts.References: http://www.colgate.edu/academics/departments-and-programs/peace-and-conflict-studies/podcast-serieshttp://www.colgate.edu/pconIf you like what you see, subscribe to our channel.Colgate University (http://colgate.edu) is a highly selective residential liberal arts institution distinguished by academic excellence, interdisciplinary inquiry, and increasing student digital IQ.
