Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever

Through memories and interviews with my family, 'Yellow Fever' reflects on the effect globalization is having on African women's attitudes towards beauty.

Kitwana's Journey

Kitwana's Journey

00:05:53

“This is the story of a boy named Kitwana,
A boy who laughed and played,
and went to school,
and did all the things that children do.
One day Kitwana’s life would change and not for the better,
This, however, nobody knew.”
- Ng'endo Mukii

Kesho Pia Ni Siku Stories In Place

Kesho Pia Ni Siku Stories In Place

00:09:17

Ng’endo Mukii further exposes the patriarchy engrained in our society with her film documentary titled ‘Kesho Pia Ni Siku’, which chronicles a Black-owned small business called Kanyoko Fabrics & Designs, run by Njeri Mereka, her mother. Kesho Pia Ni Siku, which means Tomorrow Is Another Day’ in Kiswahili, is part of Stories In Place, a collection of stories that chronicle small businesses as they navigate a world in flux.
