Details About the talk

Chris Albani raconte les histoires de différentes personnes : des gens qui se dressent face aux soldats, des gens compatissants, des gens humains qui réclament leur humanité. C'est "l'ubuntu", dit-il : "la seule manière pour moi d'être humain est qu'un autre m'offre le reflet de mon humanité".
