This story was fascinating to write. Danai Gurira is a phenomenal actor, playwright and is bringing stories of African women and African immigrant families to the stage.
"I became very, very, ravenous for depictions and storytelling that came specifically from the African perspective, because I couldn’t find many. It was really a necessity for me to start creating narrative around those stories. And actually I found it quite thrilling to do so." - Danai Gurira
