Actress Mia Farrow gives Darfur items to UConn
Question of the Day
STORRS, CONN. (AP) - Actress and humanitarian activist Mia Farrow says she has donated videotapes, artifacts and other items from her advocacy in Sudan’s Darfur region to the University of Connecticut.
Farrow, a Connecticut resident, tells The Hartford Courant ( http://bit.ly/n0EEPe) that the items document songs, dances and other rituals that are in danger of being lost as refugees struggled to survive in camps in that African nation.
The 35-hour video collection includes demonstrations of farming methods, children’s stories, wedding ceremonies and other traditions among the Darfuris, who have struggled for years against genocide and starvation.
The items are now housed at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at UConn and available for viewing by researchers and others interested in the research.
