Returning to Zambia to Build a Dream Life in the African Bush with Pam Millington
Play • 46 min

This week's guest is Pam Millington, originally from Zambia, Pam married a Brit and raised two children in a rural village in Wiltshire. When the boys flew the nest, Pam and Richard decided to fly off too and moved back to Zambia to a build a house in the virgin bush.

Brave New You TRIBE podcast Host, artist & illustrator, Lou Hamilton chatted with Pam as they discussed growing up as the only black girl in her primary school in Zambia, boarding at the same secondary school that Nelson Mandela sent his kids to, falling in love with a Brit and heading to the UK with him to raise a family. Bringing up two boys in a rural, very white, village in Wiltshire, Pam had to help them learn to fend off taunts, and on one occasion she faced up to the head teacher who, she believed reacted to an incident in a disappointingly racist fashion. When the boys left home Pam and her husband Richard decided to head back to Zambia on the offer of land, and set out to build their dream life in the Africa bush.

In this way this Woman of Courage brings us her Story from the Edge.
