As part of her first public mural, incredibly talented artist, Kenturah Davis made a drawing of my portrait at Alliance Française in Accra. In her words,
“The drawing is of four different women, living in Accra. The text used to render the image is an Audre Lorde quote, “I am deliberate and afraid of nothing.”
I am facing so many obstacles with getting the Rex Cinema off the ground in Ghana. Reviving the Rex is part of a larger vision to stimulate a creative culture that appreciates Ghanaian perspectives and fosters cultural exchange.
Kenturah’s drawing at one of Ghana’s leading cultural institutions gives me so much hope. Despite the challenges, I believe the Rex as Ghana’s own cinema space will soon come into fruition
