Don’t Ever Whisper

Darlene Keju: Pacific Health Pioneer, Champion for Nuclear Survivors

Darlene empowered women, young people, and their communities to take control of their own health and economic well being.

Don't Ever WhisperGiff Johnson’s* book tells the powerful story of a woman from a tiny Pacific island who championed the cause of nuclear weapons test survivors and later implemented unparalleled community health programs that gave hope to a generation of troubled youth. Don’t Ever Whisper is the stirring account of Marshall Islander Darlene Keju’s struggle to gain an American education and to use that education first to expose to the world a United States government cover up of its nuclear weapons testing program in her islands, and later to inspire young Marshall Islanders to make changes in their personal behavior to transform the health of their communities.
