In thirty minutes, Dr.Livermore seems to be able to peg Sub-Saharan African culture without stereotyping, judging, condescending, or idealizing. I teach and coach Sub-Saharan high school students in Atlanta, and I can see where my African students abide by and extend the culture of Ubuntu to their "family" of Latino and Vietnamese classmates and teammates. Now I can begin to have a better understanding of my African students' family relations, dress codes, gender roles, and religious beliefs.
