Details About the talk

Chris Abani raconte des histoires qui parlent des êtres humains: de gens qui tiennent tête aux soldats, qui démontrent de la compassion, qui savent être humains et se réapproprier leur humanité. Il appelle cela « ubuntu », qui dit que "la seule façon pour moi d'être humain est qu'un autre me reflète mon humanité".
