9781478709206: Cry of an African Parent from the Diaspora

This book is not fiction; it is about actual life experiences of many African parents, including the author, who have traveled and joined their adult children in Western countries. Many African parents came to America to live with pleasure with their children, some to seek medical treatment but happened to join the growing number of parents who are faced with unimaginable parental maltreatment from their own children in the West. These Parents, especially of African origin and particularly from Sierra Leone and Liberia, are forced to face humiliation of physical and/or verbal abuses; rudely and arrogantly addressed by their children, and sometimes face outright molestations that have made some to suffer from depression, and sometimes even early death. In this book I attempt to bring this silent killer to the attention of the general public and to warn the African parents who have not yet travelled to meet their children abroad but hungry of doing so, the real dangers of these abuses they would be faced with, and to congratulate the most lucky parents who are here and fortunate to receive dignified treatment from their children in the Diaspora. The overall goal is to bring these ugly and shameful behaviors of African children to light.

Mr. Massaquoi has served in many capacities as consultant in conflict resolution, both in Sierra Leone and Liberia during the disarmament, resettlement and reintegration of the ex-combatants of the civil wars in these countries.
