Ngozi: Le silence est un luxe que nous ne pouvons pas nous permettre

Ils m’ont éduqué au catholicisme. Quand j’étais petite, j’adorais aller à l’église. Ma famille se rendait tous les dimanches à la chapelle Saint-Pierre, un grand bâtiment blanc situé sur le campus de l’université du Nigéria, où j’ai été élevé. Le curé était un professeur d’université. Et autant que possible pour une église catholique romaine, c’était un lieu ouvert, progressiste…

Pero…
