Talking on BBC Newsday: Lupita and People Magazine

I was contacted today by BBC World Service Radio to engage in a discussion about Lupita Nyong’o’s recent People Magazine cover. She’s “Most Beautiful Person of the Year!” And while it’s wonderful to celebrate Ms. Nyong’o’s beauty, I also wanted to comment on her great accomplishments as an actress and filmmaker.

The discussion was facilitated by Bola Mosuro and I talked with Ugandan writer Melinda Ozongwu. It was awesome to have a dialogue about black females in Hollywood, with black females!
