Urbanworld Digital’s African Diaspora Migration Panel. Calling it a full house would be an understatement! Guests were happy to sit on the theatre’s corridor, submerging into what @okayplayer’s @abiolaoke brought to the table to artists @blitzambassador, @crownpeace and @shawnpeezie. There was certainly a magical energy meandering through the room as each artist shared how their vision was born. • • • • • #makeyourmark #urbanworld #urbanworlddigital #africandiaspora #migration #africanfilm #africanstories

When a Black war vet witnesses vigilantes kill an unarmed immigrant at the border, she take matters into her own hands.
