I'm a passionate journalist & strategist who uses her storytelling skills to save lives and protect and defend Human Rights.
Human rights violations against migrants can include a denial of civil and political rights such as arbitrary detention, torture, or a lack of due process, as well as economic, social and cultural rights such as the rights to health, housing or education.
I produced this film to support migrants.

When I heard the name of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s newest addition to their family, like most White British people, I fell all the way out.
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
I was giddy. In contrast, many White Britons were seething and considered it audacious of the duke and duchess of Sussex to name their daughter after Prince Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana, and his grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen.
This is in part based on British White supremacy and its byproduct of ant...
#DanielKaluuya won the best-supporting actor #Oscar following his #Bafta win for his role as Fred Hampton in #judasandtheblackmessiah. He is the FIRST Black British Actor EVER to win an Oscar. I discussed the film with one of Britain's Black Panthers who modeled much of her community-based resistance work on Hampton's vision.
Imagine being the majority in your own African country and colonizers come in and rig the social, economic, and political systems in their favor. This was the legal structure of apartheid South Africa. It was actively racist and like all white supremacist systems, was criminal as it robbed Black people of their lives and futures.
Where there is oppression there is always resistance and the anti-apartheid struggles in South Africa were bloody and created the blueprint for all other global anti...

Meghan Markle has left Britain, paid back taxpayer’s money, conceded all of her titles and privileges, but she is still vilified by much of the British media. Her resistance to anti-Black racist aggression challenges their efforts to preserve White supremacy. Meghan’s resistance doesn’t allow the White ignorance and dominance needed to maintain the wider structures of White privilege.
I never thought Meghan Markle joining the royal family represented a changing institution in a changing Briti...
I caught all my Rastaman vibrations after watching Meghan and Harry sit down with Oprah. I actively started to “Chant Down Babylon” reciting the classic Bob Marley song and calling out for lightning and thunder to cast Meghan and Harry’s enemies asunder. I even joined my mum in citing Psalms 109 to provide divine protection for Meghan and their son Archie and smite their enemies.
Despite my desire to protect them, what the interview did was underscore the horrors of White supremacy and anti-B...

I had my inauguration outfit picked out months ago, a peach and gold sari that looks like the beautiful sunrises in Palolem, the city in Goa where I bought it. I was saving my traditional dress for a special occasion and the historic ceremony to mark the commencement of a new four-year term of the first Black, Indian and female vice president of the United States is it!
But the absolute pride and joy that characterizes my excitement about Vice President-elect Kamala Devi Harris’s inauguration...
I am sitting in my home across the proverbial pond in London wondering why a portion of White America violently stormed and sieged the heart of U.S. democracy last Wednesday. People who watched the violence keep saying: “This is not who we are!” But this phrase expresses their strange cognitive dissonance when it comes to racism and violence. When I hear it — which is frequently — it makes me spit out my tea every time.
Yes, actually, this is who “you” are. It took a deadly invasion of the Ca...
