Aminata Touré
Wir können mehr sein: Die Macht der Vielfalt

Aminata Touré’s book is part autobiography and part political essay and it is intended to motivate other young people to consider a political career. In addition to her clear political positions, Touré is pleasantly approachable, emotional and creative – not least because her narrative text is peppered with numerous self-written poems about freedom and dreams, being Black and a woman.
