Welcome to Episode Nine of Two Black Girls!
Listen in as we open with Lizbet Sempa’s ‘Epiphany’ before we talk to filmmaker and illustrator, Cecile Emeke. We talk all things Strolling, Ackee and Saltfish, filmmaking, creativity and the Black community, feminism, capitalism, colonialism. In fact the whole thing feels like an episode of Strolling and it’s amazing.
Breaking away from tradition, we decided to not do shout-outs this time around but rather send a message of solidarity to Palestine, especially the people of Gaza. There will be another national demonstration tomorrow so if you can go please do. Don’t feel powerless and like there is nothing you can do to support the people of Palestine, you can: support the BDS movement, spread awareness of what is happening through social media and above all, educate yourself about what is happening.
We know have a date for our #TBGMeetUp: Summer Picnic so get ready to take over St. James’s Park on August 9th. You can confirm your attendance on Facebook or just show up on the day!
Cecile will be screening Ackee and Saltfish on September 20th at the Rio Cinema in Dalston. We will of course be in attendance. You can find out more about the screening and reserve your ticket here
