Derick Burleson won the Felix Pollack Prize for his collection of poems about Rwanda, called "Ejo." Burleson tells Jim Fleming he was evacuated from Rwanda just ahead of the genocide and couldn't believe the atrocities that occurred. His friends and colleagues were among the murderers and the murdered. He reads several of his poems.
