  • 15. Works Cited “About the Darfur Dream Team.” Darfur Dream Team - Sisters Schools Program. Enough, 2010. Web. 25 Oct. 2010. <http://www.darfurdreamteam.org/>. The website of Darfur Dream Team provides information about a relief effort to help refugees from Darfur. This organization helps refugees by providing them with education. I evaluated this source by finding pages that link to this page. I discovered that other legitimate organizations that are centered towards helping refugees link to this page. Additionally, I investigated the organization Enough that is in partnership with the Darfur Dream Team organization. Through my research, I found that Enough is a real and ongoing project that is focused on ending genocide and other crimes. This information informed me of another organization that is trying to resolve the conflicts in Sudan. I now know that there is an organization focused on helping the victims of the conflicts in Sudan. Dau, John Bul. God Grew Tired of Us. Washington, DC: National Geographic Society, 2007. Print. This book is specifically a memoir because it covers the troublesome life of a Lost Boy of Sudan, written by himself, John Bul Dau. It basically tells the life story of a boy who was caught in the middle of the Sudanese civil war, and what happens as his life progresses and is introduced to the United States of America. I evaluated by researching the story of John Bul Dau, and not only is it obviously a true account, but a personal movie was made starring him and his life progressed. I can easily trust this memoir to give me the truthful facts. This book definitely enhanced my topic because not only is my group basing our project from this memoir, but this is a first person account of a survivor who has witnessed this civil war, and reading about his adventures has put me in his shoes during his time in Africa.
  • 16. “Genocide in Sudan.” Global Issues in Context. N.p., n.d. Web. 30 Oct. 2010. <http://find.galegroup.com/gic/infomark.do?contentSet=EBKS&docType=EBKS.Article&idigest =b527955b5caccdb4b4a2d40e86fe061a&type=retrieve&tabID=T001&prodId=GIC&docId=CX2 831200188&userGroupName=cant48040&version=1.0&searchType=BasicSearchForm&source= gale>. The key information I attained from this article was mostly from the Gender and Human Rights Aspect paragraph of the article. This information allowed me to realize how the people are being treated and how the war affects them. To evaluate the information, I checked it with outside sources. After I confirmed the information, I used some of the skills I attained doing Information Literacy Modules to further asses this article. The information helped me answer my research question because it pertains to how it is affecting the people. It also led me to more information on how people’s human rights are being violated. Inbar, Michael. “George Clooney: We Can Stop Civil War in Sudan.” Today Show. Msnbc, 2010. Web. 25 Oct. 2010. <http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/39629106/ns/today-today_people>. This article from Msnbc is written by Michael Inbar. Inbar describes George Clooney, an actor, and his involvement in the resolution of civil war in Sudan. To make sure that this article is a good source of information, I evaluated the author of the article. When I researched about Michael Inbar, I discovered that Inbar has written numerous articles for Msnbc with prestigious news reporters, such as Meredith Vieira. This source provided me with more information on what actions individuals are making to do help resolve the conflicts in Sudan. This source also gave me another insight on the current conflicts in Sudan.
  • 17. “Rebuilding Sudan...One Woman at a Time.” Women for Women International: Helping Women Survivors of War Rebuild Their Lives. N.p., n.d. Web. 25 Oct. 2010. <http://www.womenforwomen.org/global-initiatives-helping-women/help-women- sudan.php>. This website describes an organization that is helping women refugees to build a better life through education. I evaluated this source by finding all of the pages that link to this website. I discovered that other real organizations that are helping women refugees links to this site. The information from this site brings me more information on what people are trying to do to help the conflicts in Sudan. I now know that there are legitimate organizations that are helping refugees in Sudan.
