Danai Gurira gives thanks & says goodbye to 2016 on Instagram

Danai posted to Instagram for New Near’s and shared 12 things she was thankful for in 2016! Check it out below. She certainly had an amazing year!

12 Things I must give thanks for as I say goodbye to 2016 (1 of 4): 1. My play "Eclipsed" going up on Broadway and breaking a mold by being the first all female creative team in the history of Broadway. 2. The astounding women I crafted that production with. 3. The experience of having two of my plays running on and off Broadway simultaneously (something I had never dreamed of) 4. The warm response my newest play "Familiar" received and how it turned out (being that it is my most personal work) 5. Using Eclipsed as a platform for activism. Thank you so much Emmanuel Ogebe, Bono, Zainab Bangura and all the amazing people who helped us amplify the names and voices of girls still in captivity through our dedication series.
