Worth watching!

“What I’ve come to learn is that the world is never saved in grand Messianic gestures but in the simple accumulation of gentle, soft almost invisible everyday acts of compassion.”  From the wonderful video clip, Chris Abani Muses on Humanity: http://ow.ly/1oXW1

Imprisoned three times by the Nigerian government, Chris Abani turned his experience into poems that Harold Pinter called “the most naked, harrowing expression of prison life and political torture imaginable.” His novels include GraceLand (2004) and The Virgin of Flames (2007).  He is also a publisher, running the poetry imprint Black Goat Press.
