P.O.V. | Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars | Preview | PBS

If the refugee is today's tragic icon of a war-ravaged world, then "Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars," airing on PBS's P.O.V. series on June 26, 2007, featuring a reggae-inflected band born in the camps of West Africa, represents a real-life story of survival and hope. The six-member Refugee All Stars came together in Guinea after civil war forced them from their native Sierra Leone. Traumatized by physical injuries and the brutal loss of family and community, they fight back with the only means they have — music. The result, as shown in "Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars," is a tableau of tragedy transformed by the band's inspiring determination to sing and be heard. A Diverse Voices Project co-production.
