Shining a light on the often unseen and ignored narratives that are a part of, the whole, black experience. Din-Gabisi’s film w1mn inspired by Nina Simone’s composition “Four Women” is a thanku to the spirit of

Nina Simone and was made, to get us to look with our, oju ode (outer eyes) and our oju inu (inner eyes) to see the ewa ode (external beauty) and ewa inu (inner beauty) in these four (and all!) blk w1mn.
