Living culture BY DBPSite

It is Hollywood award season so the red carpet is getting a work out. An amazing actress named Lupita Nyong’o is leading the pack in so many ways. I admire how she has approached her meteoric rise to stardom – including teaching us how to pronounce her name.

She is requiring us to honor culture with out shortcuts. Calling her “LN” or “Lulu” is not an option!
