1. Chris Abani tells us how dirges contributed to transforming a sad event? How does music contribute to changing our vision of things? Provide some examples.

2. Chris Abani tells us how his mother taught people in rural areas. How is learning in a rural area different from learning in a city such in Barcelona?

3. Chris Abani says: “we're building gods that have gone rampant, and it's time we started knocking them down” What does he mean by that?
