“We are used to women’s narratives being defined through the male perspective. I challenge that as a concept.” . From the small screen to the big screen to the stage, Danai Gurira’s talent extends to them all. We first noticed Gurira in ‘The Visitor’ (2007), where she played an illegal immigrant from Senegal living in New York with her boyfriend. Since then, we've watched her in another stunning performance depicting immigrant life in the U.S. - as one half of a Nigerian couple living in Brooklyn in Andrew Dosunmu’s visual feast, ‘Mother of George’ (2013). Oh, and did we mention she’s in blockbusters too? As Okoye in this summer’s ‘Black Panther’ and as Michonne on TV’s ‘The Walking Dead.’ Just sayin’. . Her biggest passion, though, is to “tell stories about strong, complicated, African women." Besides depicting them on screen, she has put pen to paper. Her play, ‘Eclipsed,’ about five Liberian women and their stories of survival during the second Liberian civil war, opened in 2009, premiered on Broadway in 2016 and ended up being nominated for six Tony Awards including Best Play. She also won critical acclaim off-Broadway with ‘Familiar’ (2015), centered on a Zimbabwean family preparing for the wedding of their daughter, a first-generation American. . We have no doubt she has many powerful stories left to tell. .

I refuse to let this be another summer that I’m afraid to get my hair wet, need to lose 15 pounds before I brave a bikini, or waist another moment obsessing that I’m not “summertime fine” enough for the beach. Nope! Summer 18 is gonna get whatever body I give it. And it’s gonna love every curve and jelly roll! 🙌🏽😘😂 #livingmybestlife #memorialdayweekend #nopsi #summer #selflove #melanin #nola #naturalhair #afro #neworleans #bodypositivity
