Video: The language of connection.

Moses Monweal McCormick is a 33 year old African American from Columbus Ohio. If you look at this picture of him from his Instagram feed you may experience at least some preconceptions, biases and prejudices of who he might be.

You are about to have them busted.


You see Moses speaks over 50 languages, demonstrating fluency in more than 12. He is completely self taught.

On his Youtube channel, Moses posts roughly edited videos of him visiting shopping malls, restaurants and other public spaces to engage with total strangers using their cultural language as a bridge.

Moses instigates random meetings of incredulous surprise often followed with joyful interactions as people suddenly realise they have an unexpected connection with him.

And there is something else going on here. Can you see what it is?
