Twitter Convo makes my day

April 1, 2014

Our primary outreach and engagement goals for A Lot Like You have been to get this film seen by as many people as possible AND to show up for the thoughtful conversations that our story evokes.   Until now, these two have gone hand in hand.  Whether I’m traveling to festivals, museums, campuses, […]

Phenom Convo w/Zadie Smith & Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie

March 19, 2014

It’s been 4 hours, and I’m still buzzing from live tweeting this truly PHENOMENAL conversation between Zadie Smith and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie — about fiction/prose, identity, class, strong women, global mixed race experience, global blackness (being “the good black” vs. African American), retaining agency in interracial relationships, African fashionistas, trauma, Black hair, […]

The post-screening Q&A was […]

12/8/11 ~ BBC World News

Met with Leslie Goffe (BBC World News) at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York Public Library prior to our screening.  We had an intensely engaging conversation that covered a lot of ground in a very short period of time.  But I must admit to still being so green at […]

12/8/11 ~ 2am

Gale force winds met us as we approached the airport.  You could literally hear and feel the plane bending.  That was by far the bumpiest landing I’ve had in a long while. Diarah N’Daw-Spech, the festival director, picked me up at the airport.  It was well after midnight!  On the drive to the […]
