Synopsis

The Shattered Pearl is an account of the ten years that Sara Armstrong spent in Uganda, East Africa. It begins with an inside look at the Peace Corps in 1966 against the backdrop of the civil rights movement. Sara found herself the only black Peace Corps trainee in a group of 150. Once in Uganda, Sara taught science and math and traveled around East Africa. In April 1968, Sara married a Ugandan, resigned from the Peace Corps and began a new life. On January 25, 1971 Idi Amin Dada seized power and plunged this tropical paradise into a cycle of unimaginable terror and bloodshed. During the next six year, as this incredible tragedy unfolded, Sara moved freely around Uganda witnessing many things that were not reported in the press. She lived as a Ugandan but saw events from an American viewpoint including the historic raid on Entebbe Airport. The Shattered Pearl is a gripping, entertaining account of an incredible journey filled with adventure, love, joy and terror.
