GHANIAN/BRITISH Filmmaker AMMA ASANTE and Actress TEYONNAH PARRIS cover the August/September 2016 issue of NEW AFRCAN WOMAN Magazine!!!

AMMA ASANTE will this October, open the highly prestigious and coveted BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL 2016  with her upcoming new film A UNITED KINGDOM She will become the first ever black person to do so in the 60-year BFI history.
AMMA ASANTE said:
A United Kingdom is a controversial and complex love story Seretse Khama coming to England to study, enduring racism, falling in love with a white woman, and taking her back to be his queen… the couple defied family, apartheid and Empire. I remember my mum sometimes coming home with spit on her back. I remember the sh*t through the letterbox. I remember that we used to have to lay trays in front of our letterbox when we went to sleep. …You realise that we are consigned to repeat the problems of our past if we don’t make a change”

TEYONAH PARRIS said:
“Everyone has a different reason for going back to natural hair. For some it’s a political statement, for others it’s a social statement. For me, it was really about self-acceptance…I would like young women to know that you don’t have to look like anything or what anybody says you should look like. You can look like yourself just like God made you. You’re unique! You don’t have to bend, lighten and straighten to look like somebody else.
I would like young women to know that you don’t have to look like anything or what anybody says you should look like. You can look like yourself just like God made you.
