John Dau kicks off the Strathmore Speaker Series

The Strathmore Speaker Series would like to extend a special thanks to former Sundanese ‘Lost Boy’ John Dau for kicking off our inaugural 2014-2015 season with a bang! We’d also like to thank of all those who attended our very first event as well as our partners at the Gifford Foundation, Syracuse’s Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Onondaga Park Association for their generous support.

Those looking to connect directly with John Dau and his foundation can find them here, while those interested in learning more about Dau’s inspiring journey from South Sudan (formerly a part of Sudan), to Ethiopia, Kenya, and on to America can find his memoir here and the resulting documentary here.
