Dr. Benjamin Danielson, physician at Odessa Brown Clinic, hosted by Max Hunter, assistant professor of biology.

“Ubuntu speaks of the very essence of being human. [We] say ... ‘Hey, so-and-so has ubuntu.’ Then you are generous, you are hospitable, you are friendly and caring and compassionate. You share what you have. It is to say, ‘My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in yours.’ We belong in a bundle of life. We say, ‘A person is a person through other persons.’”
