Danai Guirira, live from the Global Citizen Festival on September 24, 2016, explains why she’s partnering with Johnson & Johnson to fight HIV/AIDS.
2016 Global Citizen Festival to End Extreme Poverty By 2030. The event was held today in Central Park, and had appearances by several celebrities and musicians. If you haven’t heard of Global Citizen, it’s an organization with the mission to encourage people to take action on issues such as world hunger. Danai spoke on stage but before the show she spoke with an interviewer on the red carpet and gave some really powerful words about taking action. She also had some advice for girls and women around the world. She is such an inspiration. See the pictures and a couple of videos below!
One story from the caring world: Nyumbani. Narrated by Danai Gurira, this film shows how this unique organization is changing the story of children and HIV/AIDS in Africa. Johnson & Johnson is proud to help Nyumbani by supporting programs that bring clean water, education and access to new medicines.
There was a new trailer released this week for Danai’s upcoming movie All Eyez On Me. If you haven’t heard, it’s a biopic based on the life of the rapper Tupac Shakur. Danai plays Afeni Shakur, Tupac’s mother. Watch the new trailer below!
Here is the official trailer for The Walking Dead season 7, released at SDCC!
Danai appears in the beginning of the trailer as we see a montage of memories for each character present during the Negan scene from the season 6 finale. For Michonne and Rick, we see scenes from their time together and with Carl and Judith. The trailer is so intense and I can’t wait for the premiere!
The Walking Dead returns October 23rd, so mark your calendars!
