Young, Gifted and Black

#121. Love this campaign by Channel O on DSTV. It’s called Young, Gifted and Black and its key motif is the remake of a Nina Simone song that became a civil rights anthem. The Channel O version features a star line-up including Lira and Yvonne Chaka Chaka. Its moving and soulful and beautiful to watch.
