Chris Abani – On Humanity

Chris Abani’s talk circles around an understanding of humanity known as “Ubuntu”: that the only way for me to be human, is for you to reflect my humanity back at me. In his own words, “Ubuntu” says that there’s no way for us to be human, without other people.

And so he shares a number of little stories to do with people. Some are warm and amusing, others dark and disheartening. A really moving talk.
