Share |

War Brothers (Annick Press) is a graphic novel by Sharon E. McKay and Daniel Lafrance which addresses the issue of Ugandan child soldiers.

Although the authors have fictionalized the tale, it closely mirrors real life, and does not pull any punches for the young adult audience. The video book trailer, created by MovingStories.TV, uses Daniel Lafrance’s striking artwork and snippets of the text.

Voice narration is provided by Toolit Ivan, a young man currently living in Gulu and was recorded there specifically for this video. The song is "African Children (Black Children)" performed and recorded in Africa by Ugandan stars Rax & Romeo. Sung in English and Luo Acholi, it’s been hugely popular in Africa and is now making fans around the world. To listen to the entire song, "African Children (Black Children)" performed by Ugandan stars Rax & Romeo, watch the music video here.
