Mungi Ngomane

Overview

Ubuntu is a Xhosa word meaning 'humanity,' which is often used in a philosophical sense. This philosophical meaning can be understood best through the proverb 'a person is a person through other persons.' Everything we learn and experience throughout our lives is the direct result of our relationships with other people. Being aware of the concept of ubuntu makes every one of us responsible not just for our own lives but also every life we come in contact with.

Mungi Ngomane is an author, public speaker, and granddaughter of human rights activist Desmond Tutu.

In Everyday Ubuntu, Ngomane shares the practices of ubuntu that she's learned from her South African cultural upbringing and distills them into simple lessons for living a more compassionate, courageous, and connective life.

"Life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching."
