Mali photography: and a tale of reading and writing {or not}

Reading 2
Imagine this.  Imagine you couldn’t read or write.  You could never read a newspaper, or a novel, or a recipe.  You could never keep a diary, or make a grocery list or write a love letter.   Imagine you couldn’t even write your name.  You had to sign an x instead.  Oh.
