A film that chronicles the lives of indigenous faith believers in Nigeria, and the discriminatory attitudes they face.

About the speaker:

Shola Lawal, a Nigerian journalist, is the writer, producer, and director of the recently released film “Where Power’s Live.” She is the recipient of the 2019 International Women’s Media Foundation’s (IWMF) Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship, which brought her to MIT as a research associate at the MIT Center for International Studies, and provides journalism stays at The Boston Globe and The New York Times. She reports on issues of humanity and injustice, including the women’s rights movement in Nigeria, migrants in Libya, forest reserves in Ghana, political upheaval in Togo, the Boko Haram conflict, and the migrant crisis in Mexico and the US.

The film is about 15 minutes in length and will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with Shola Lawal.

A light lunch will be served.


Co-sponsors: MIT Center for International Studies
