Fulani

I was just thinking of a friend of mine while going through Flickr and I was reminded of some pictures I saw a few months ago done by a Polish photographer of a group of Fulani in Sudan. While the pictures were very moving, the story of this particular group of Fulani and the discrimination they survived through in Sudan was even more moving. I have not done a similar post recently, but I still have so much to learn about the various tribes that exist in Africa that move beyond the borders established by the colonists, that the very least I can do is at least show a few images....
