111: Gabriela Watson-Burkett We Want the Airwaves

    • Society & Culture

Filmmaker and producer Gabriela Watson-Burkett makes work to connect people across the African diaspora. Her first film, Nosotros Afroperuanos, discusses Black history in Peru and its erasure. Her second film, Baobab Flowers, draws parallels between a Black woman educator in São Paulo, Brazil and a Black woman educator in Philadelphia. Her most recent project, ¡Presente! Media, is an activist media organization she co-founded with two other Latinas. In part one of this two-part interview, we discuss her experience growing up Afro-Peruvian in Brazil and covering Brazil's immigrant communities as part of one of her (many) internships in broadcast journalism. Keep an ear out for part two, coming later this month! (Photo by Scott Burkett)
