Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire

Malika Bakayoko’s mother and father come from different tribes, with different languages. Their language in common was French, so that is what she learned at home and school. Now she longs to feel comfortable with her tribal families, but she cannot even talk to them. She must always turn to her father and say, “What is she saying?”

Anybody but Myself

Words from Will Foote, teaching artist, to the story source of this
song: “I want to say how grateful I am that you were willing to share,
and for the story you told as part of our Veterans’ Project. The song
has kept me reflecting on myself, and there are parts of the past 5
years that it’s really helped me process in a new, less painful way. I
am grateful. Thank you.”
