Andrew Schwartz speaks with Gambian human rights activist Muhammed Lamin Saidykhan. Muhammed is the coordinator for Africans Rising, which is an emerging pan-African movement working for justice, peace, and dignity, and which aims to build solidarity across campaigns for social, economic, environmental, and gender justice. Muhammed talks with Andrew about the mission of Africans Rising, how Ubuntu philosophy frames his work, the need for an intersectional approach to social justice and the climate crisis, the power of youth activism, and why he says that his “hope is the masses.”
