Description

Hosted by two queer brown immigrants Rage Kidvai & Thanu Yakupitiyage - Bad Brown Aunties is a podcast about art, culture, politics, and legacy through the lens of the amazing and creative people of color in our community. In each episode, we pick an artist, activist, writer, or cultural worker to talk about their lives, work, and who inspired them to be who they are, with a special nod to the aunties and elders that have shaped them.

Lupita Nyong'o - "The Power of Story"
41:22

This week we bring you a rare, intimate interview with the one and only Lupita Nyong’o. To the world, she’s a barrier-breaking Oscar-winning actress, fashionista, and now children’s book author. She also happens to be one of our close, long-time friends. Lupita talks to us about moving to the United States, her family, how she’s navigated fame, her passion for telling authentic stories that expand representation, and about the aunties who’ve uplifted her along the way.
