Displaced: Stories of Struggle in South Africa
In June 2008, a group from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln — two advisers, seven student photographers, two student reporters and one student videographer — traveled to South Africa for 18 days. Their project, which had been in the making for the previous six months, focused on documenting immigration issues in South Africa.
The group arrived in South Africa amidst the aftermath of xenophobic violence that tore through the country in the several weeks leading up to the trip. What these student journalists found were stories of extreme suffering like none of them had ever known or witnessed. This project offers just a glimpse of the countless heartbreaking and inspiring stories the group discovered in South Africa.
