Content : Planted more than eight hundred years ago, the old baobab tells its story.
A whole village has been built around it and it has become the tree of speech, at the foot of which women and men meet, laugh, discuss and make important decisions.
Symbol of freedom of speech, it is the main enemy of sinister characters who, one day, decide to attack the village to rush it into the night.

A book about freedom of speech, published in partnership with Amnesty International.
