With rapid changes in technology, and as the concept of money continues to evolve, how can Africans become producers and owners not just users and spectators?

She worked as an actress alongside talents like Viola Davis and Angela Bassett, and for world-class directors, including Oliver Stone and Barry Levinson. She was a political organizer for the Obama presidential campaigns, growing a team of 4 volunteers into 2,000 members and helping Obama win her congressional district  by the largest margin in the California primary. A vocal advocate for arts education and other social justice issues, she is a regular contributor to national outlets including CNN.com and the Huffington Post, and earned a place atop CNN.com’s “Most Popular Op-Eds.”  Lucia is a graduate of Harvard with a Master’s in Acting from the Yale School of Drama.
