Run with Kenyans

11/04/2011

 The latest release from Kwani Trust, a Kwanini? Title by Jackie Lebo named  ‘Running’, will be available for sale during the event. This title is the first release from a larger project that seeks to highlight one of the biggest undocumented stories in modern sports history. What exists is fragmented reportage – statistics, anecdotes and inconclusive studies that try to extricate the one thing that makes Kenyan athletes so dominant in middle and long distance running. Against the backdrop of the system that is Kenyan running, the personal stories – the human face of athletics – are the most compelling. Jackie Lebo’s writing questions what motivates people to start running, how their families take it and how they are able to balance life and athletics.

Please join us at the Back Bay Events Center at 200 Berkley St. in  Boston from 6:30PM to 10:30PM for this  event. Others in attendance will  be MA Gov. Deval Patrick, Mayor Menino and The Kenyan Ambassador to the US, Amb. Elkanah Odembo. Free  refreshments will be available.
