“Destinations With Doni,” the first episode of Culturs Magazine’s latest podcast, is out now, featuring an interview with the makers of a new film on a little-known U.S. civil rights leader.
Actor Aunjanue Ellis may be best known for her 2022 Oscar-nominated performance in the film “King Richard” as well as the HBO series “Lovecraft Country” and “When They See Us” on Netflix, but personal passion continues to bring her to the table.
Ellis on ‘Fannie’
In a new short film, “Fannie,” Ellis and Director Christine Swanson pay homage to Fannie Lou Hamer, a U.S. civil rights advocate whom many in the United States may not know of.
Not for much longer, though, if they have anything to say about it.
