Madiba Prep students get special visit from UN Ambassador Ger Duany
Students at Madiba Prep in Bed-Stuy received a special visit from a man who lived the stories they read in the classroom.
United Nations ambassador, actor and model Ger Duany is one of the former "Sudanese Lost Boys."
Sixth graders at the school, who recently finished reading "A Long Walk to Water," had the chance to ask Duany questions.
"A Long Walk to Water" tells the stories of the lost boys of Sudan.
Getting the chance to meet one of the "lost boys" was something their teacher says she knew would be exciting for them.
