Feminist Batwoman
“The history of slavery and the complication of slavery is that it is an international concept. It is something that effected people who were our people. For example there were people from the west of Nigeria who were taken by the hundreds of thousands and brought to Louisiana. I’m Igbo, my family is Igbo. So it is a story that I’m connected to. Steve McQueen is from the West Indies. The slave trade in the West Indies was huge, it was vast, it was vicious, it was brutal. We are connected in the diaspora through this experience. We’re not separated by it, we are connected through it.” 
- Chiwetel Ejiofor on 12 Years A Slave and working with Steve McQueen 
I’m really looking forward to Chiwetel Ejiofor and Steve McQueen, two massive talents of the film industry, getting the respect they deserve for this film.
