Cultural Writing. Memoir. SEEING THROUGH AFRICA, is a memoir that takes readers from New York to East Africa and back again. Born in Brooklyn, Arthur Dobrin and his wife Lyn went to Kenya as Peace Corps volunteers. From 1965 to 1967, they lived and worked in the western highlands just south of the equator, near Lake Victoria. Dobrin has remained deeply connected to the country and SEEING THROUGH AFRICA is a reflection upon the land that he thinks of as his second home. It is about guns and beauty, writing and travel, and food. And it is about how differences can be bridged through a concern for the lives of others. Dobrin is Professor of Humanities at Hofstra University, where he is the recipient of the Peter Herman Literary Award. Co-founder and co-leader of Amnesty International Group #74 and leader of the Ethical Humanist Society on Long Island, he is the author of two novels set in Kenya, a collection of short stories, several books of poetry and books on ethics.
