Taking Some Losses to Win

TK grew up in segregated Rhodesia under British control and experienced the joyous birth of independent Zimbabwe. As a young lawyer,  he worked on cases pivotal in shaping the new country. But government corruption forced him and his young family to flee to the US and start over. Now doing legal work in Oregon, he continues to find ways to work toward his goals of fostering social justice and giving his children a nurturing foundation in life. 

On September 22nd, 2023, The Immigrant Story brought its acclaimed live storytelling event, The Immigrant Story Live, to the U.S. Bank Main Stage at Portland Center Stage. 

This free event is made possible by a generous contribution from Zidell Family Foundation. Additional funds for programming have been provided by Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, and by a grant from the Oregon Community Foundation.
