We will be hosting a private screeening of the film “BOUND: Africans vs African Americans” by Kenyan filmmaker Perez Owino which explores the relationship between Africans and Black Americans historically and today, followed by a low key discussion featuring Denisio Truitt and Mwende Katwiwa talking more about their inspiration for the blog given the context the film lays.
