“We must know each other’s stories to exist in each other’s eyes. In And Still Peace Did Not Come, Agnes Umunna brings us the stories of child soldiers, brave women, the despair and new hope of Liberia, and her own personal journey. This book is a gift. Accept it.”
—Gloria Steinem, writer, feminist organizer

“Agnes Umunna has captured so much in this compelling book. I can hear the voices of the boy soldiers, I can hear the cries of the women and children whose lives have been ravaged by a senseless war, and I can feel and see how one exceptional spirit can make such an enormous difference, even under the worst of circumstances.”
—Abigail Disney, Series Producer, Women, War & Peace, THIRTEEN/WNET.ORG

“A compelling journey through the horrors of the Liberian civil war and the lives of so many children who were on the front lines of this national nightmare. Despite this, the book offers equal measure of humanity and decency and gives us hope that there can be recovery. A highly recommended book for anyone interested in the human impact of war and the struggle to survive.”
—Tom Crick, Associate Director, Conflict Resolution Center, The Carter Center
