RUNNING INTO THE DARK

 

 

Most of us feel uncomfortable in the dark. Perhaps that's why society is so apathetic to human suffering. But in her TEDX Talk, "Running Into the Dark", GIDC founder Yewande begs the world to boldly confront the issues that represent the dark side of our humanity. She explains that confronting the very issues that scare us is the only way to illuminate true change.

Amazing Grace

May 2015

This spring, Yewande will produce perhaps her most compelling work to date - empowering survivors of the Boko Haram kidnapping and other vulnerable youth that live with the daily threat of being exploited in the war against global poverty. Award-winning filmmakers, the Horne Brothers have worked with the likes of Kenny Leon, Denzel Washington and Samuel L. Jackson. During this trip, they will capture her work in a documentary about called "Amazing Grace: Freedom's Song".
