Mandinga Ancestral 2017: Capoeira Angola and African Arts Festival brought Capoeira Angola living legend Mestre João Grande to Kenya for the first time. We organized events in Nairobi, Naivasha, and Nakuru as well as created the festival website where international online shoppers may purchase apparel and accessories with the festival logo or make direct donations to support the ongoing effort to teach Capoeira Angola to youth in Nairobi’s slums.
In support of the Jenin based Freedom Theatre's first US tour, we offered social media promotional support across multiple channels to increase awareness and attendance at events in New York, Washington DC and Berkeley in October where The Freedom Theatre’s work was displayed through photo, film and talks.
Co-founded a site for those who live across international boundaries. Internationality is a free resource designed to encourage American "millennials" and "globals" of color to engage in professional and educational opportunities which will better prepare them to participate in the global economy. On Internationality, we share ideas and opportunities to work, study, volunteer, create or do business overseas, as well as insights, resources, and community to do it.
