Ebrima: There’s an African child in your midst right out here in Little Five Points. He got a serious project. He aint gonna stop til we are free. Until there is no more homeless person in the city of Atlanta. We gonna do that by the ways of making copper bracelets and making films.
I had a culture shock here. I never seen people be homeless where I grew up in Africa so I got inspired to make a film. I didn’t have a gold pot but I had a gold mind so I been banging these bracelets for ten years. Now I’ve got an award winning film that’s helping all of us gain empathy and love for each other. I’m not stopping until there is no more homelessness in Atlanta.
BW: What’s the name of the film?
Ebrima: Our new project is called Food, Clothing and Shelter part 2, A Hand Up, Not a Handout. We don’t do handouts anymore Atlanta. We need a hand up!
