The Day I Stood Alone – Boniface Mwangi TED Talk

The Day I Stood Alone - Boniface Mwangi TED Talk (c)TEDGlobal

“People back home call me a heckler, a troublemaker, an irritant, a rebel, an activist, the voice of the people. But that wasn’t always me.” Boniface Mwangi

Boniface Mwangi wanted to protest against corruption in Kenya and photography was his weapon of choice. So he made a plan: He and some friends would stand up and heckle during a public mass meeting. But when the moment came … he stood alone. What happened next, he says, showed him who he truly was. As he says, “There are two most powerful days in your life. The day you are born, and the day you discover why.” Graphic images.
