Leymah Gbowee Tells The Story Of 'Mr. Do Good'

Leymah Gbowee tells the story of Mr. Do Good for African Story TV.


Besides being an all-around gem of a human being, Liberian activist/Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee can also tell a good story. In a recent clip from African Story TV , Gbowee joins forces with the cultural  preservation site to tell the tale of everyone's favorite neighbor, Mr. Do Good, whose life is governed by the simple saying, "You do good, you do good for yourself. You do bad, you do bad for yourself." Since the world would not be the same without haters, we learn what happens when Mr. Do Good's life is threatened by an enemy.

Watch this parable of karmic retribution handed down to Gbowee by her own mother here, and learn how she applies these principles in her social justice work. And remember, what goes around comes around.
