Tolu Kasali: 'Remember Me' Film, Boko Haram, and Internally Displaced Persons Rewriting Hollywood

    • Arts

Jared Milrad sits down with award-winning documentarian and activist Tolu Kasali about her powerful documentary, REMEMBER ME, which tells the story of women who have survived encounters with the terrorist organization Boko Haram in northern Nigeria. Tolu shares why she founded My Internally Displaced Persons, an organization focused on reintegrating forcibly displaced persons into society with dignity; what motivated her to make REMEMBER ME; and how you (yes, YOU!) can advocate for internally displaced persons and survivors of Boko Haram. 
In addition to being a filmmaker and advocate, Tolu is also an emerging policy leader on forced displacement and an international speaker who has addressed global audiences at high-level meetings of the WHO, World Bank, and the UK government. She has also engaged Members of the UK Parliament and the International Development Committee of the House of Commons on policy issues regarding forced displacement as part of the British Council Future Leaders Programme.
We hope you enjoy learning about Tolu and her inspiring work on behalf of internally displaced persons in Nigeria and around the world!
