Dr. Samba Gadjigo, the director of the documentary Sembene!, discusses growing up in Senegal, the challenges and opportunities of African cinema, and the inspiring author, filmmaker, and cultural change maker, Ousmane Sembene. Ousmane Sembene, considered the father of African cinema, used film to confront oppression, corruption and racial and economic inequality. His stories promoted freedom, unity and women’s empowerment. A fearless artist, Sembene used tools new to Africa—the tools of filmmaking—to explore Africa's past and suggest a brighter future. His controversial works were often banned by authorities. Though lack of access to homegrown cinema for Africans persists today, Gadjigo and his creative partner Jason Silverman have begun envisioning ways for Africans to reconnect around Sembene’s films and other new and classic African movies. By leveraging new technologies, they believe Africans can reclaim their stories and strengthen their communities. Moderated by Ousmane Loum. Check out the film here: http://www.sembenefilm.com/.

In this talk, Nick Fry, the former CEO of Brawn GP and author of "Survive. Drive. Win", discusses how he and Ross Brawn turned disaster into glory. He gives the inside track on the drivers, cars and rivalries between teams, and offers a unique and thrilling perspective on an elite global sport. Get the book: https://goo.gle/36CzPaa

Adam Rippon became an overnight sensation in 2018 as a member of the U.S. Figure Skating team that won a bronze medal at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. But, as he chronicles in his hilarious, heartwarming memoir "Beautiful on the Outside," his success on the Olympic ice was the culmination of a two-decade roller-coaster journey of ups and downs. In this talk, Adam shares anecdotes and life lessons from his career as a professional figure skater, from hardscrabble training days of couch surfing and subsisting on green apples, to the agony of failing to qualify for the 2014 Olympics, to ultimately finding the self-belief and self-actualization that led to his greatest triumph as America's first openly gay Winter Olympian.

Eve Rodsky joins us to discuss her New York Times best-selling book, and Reese's Book Club Pick, "Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live)". Fair Play is a revolutionary system for rebalancing the domestic workload between partners, putting an end to the imbalance of “invisible work” that women do regardless of whether they work outside the home. Tired of being the “shefault” parent responsible for all aspects of her busy household, Eve realized that simply identifying the issue of unequal labor on the home front wasn’t enough: she needed a solution to this universal problem. Her sanity, identity, career, and marriage depended on it. The result is Fair Play: a time-and anxiety-saving system that offers couples a completely new way to divvy up domestic responsibilities. More information about Eve and Fair Play can be found here: https://www.fairplaylife.com/ Get the book here: https://goo.gle/2q0u5pI Moderated by Bethanie Baynes.
