Danai Gurira featured in BUST Magazine

Danai is featured in the October/November issue of BUST Magazine! In it, there’s an article where Danai talks about her beginnings in the entertainment industry, her current projects, and feminism. I’ve added high-quality scans to the gallery and I’ve got an excerpt from the article below. You can read the entire article at Bust.com.

When asked how she remains present while managing her multiple roles as a writer, advocate, and actor, she clarifies that she is just as deliberate and purposeful as the powerful women she portrays. From playing Afeni Shakur in the Tupac biopic All Eyez on Me, to Okoye, her warrior character in Black Panther, Gurira’s personas represent a lineage of sovereign women who take ownership of their lives because of their “love of their people” and themselves.

“I try to live a purposeful life pursuing what I feel is my calling,” she says. And that calling includes creating roles as a writer that “give other black women a chance to shine. All my plays have African female protagonists and lead characters because I’m American born and Zimbabwe raised,” she continues. “I’m a product of both places and have lived my life attempting to connect them and bridge the gap.” Read more at Bust.com
