On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The thousands of Africans living with Albinism face a range of health issues, but also stigma, ostracism and physical threats.

We speak to groups working to change attitudes, provide medical assistance, and pressure officials to address the issues.
