When studying in primary school, one of Daniel Bunda’s teachers labelled him as ‘black’ and ‘Italian’.
The Roma student and volunteer explains what discrimination looked like in his case, why calling Roma people ‘gypsies’ should be avoided, and more.

Listen to Bringing World to the Classroom to find out what should, in Bunda’s opinion, change to really help the Roma minority.
