Invisible Children co-founder Jason Russell has been out of the public eye since his #Kony12 video went viral last March, followed by his public breakdown. But last night, Russell reappeared to talk candidly to Oprah about what happened, what’s next for Invisible Children and why he’s still fighting to free child soldiers around the world. Just yesterday, Invisible Children released a new film—called “Move,” which is calling on people to advocate with national and international leaders to stop Joseph Kony.
From the interview transcript:
“JASON: “Again, it’s really hard to explain if people who have never had an out-of-body experience, but it really wasn’t me. That wasn’t me, that person on the street corner ranting and raving and naked is not me, that’s not who I am.”
