Libby discusses “Forgiving the Unforgivable” at TEDx

In Libby’s TEDxDirigo talk on “Forgiving the Unforgivable,” she describes the values and processes at the center of Fambul Tok.

From her introduction:

“Most of the media coverage we are privy to portrays Africa as a place of darkness, despair, disease, conflict, and  savagery in many respects. On somewhat of a flip-side of that, we also hear a lot about how we have a ‘save Africa.” We see lots of stories about move stars ‘saving’ Africa. I would like to suggest that we stop trying to or even thinking we should save Africa. Instead, we should start learning from Africa.”

Please check out the talk and let us know what you think.
