    DANAI GURIRA PHOTO/APPRECIATION THREAD #5

    2016 the year of DANAI!:allthethings:


    She ran simultaneous productions of her works (Familiar and Eclipsed) both on and off Bway earning her numerous accolades including six Tony nominations. Finally received recognition for her portrayal of Michonne at the 2016 Saturn Awards.:bravo:



    Announcements of some of her biggest projects yet Black Panther, All Eyez On Me and the untitled Black Mambo film (screenplay on elephant poaching). :yay:


    She continued her work as an activist and let her voice be heard while encouraging others to do the same. Even received an honorary doctorate from her alma mater (Macalester College).:thumbsup:





    She remained poised, beautiful, witty, eloquent and fit af throughout it all.:holdheart:


    Slaying our souls with each photoshoot, red carpet, interview and appearance.:ripme:




    So much so it's to the point where I'm going through Danai withdrawal as I type this. :gabe:

    Thanks @Walkingonsunshine for starting thread #5! As always beautiful OP. :thumbsup:

    I guess we won't be hearing much from Danai until after the new years. I'm seriously going through withdrawal. T_T But I did see this on tumblr.

    Something that our Queen Danai has mastered so artfully, beautifully, elegantly and intelligently. She is ALL that and continues to strive for the betterment of WOC, women , young girls and community. She is the embodiment of a true spiritual warrior and I effing' LOVE this woman so much. I admire her resilience in the treacherous Hollyweird life and as she has accomplished her multiple successes HER way, while maintaining the essence of who she is, heart, mind, body and soul. This woman is FIERCE!! Celebrating Danai! Let the slayage continue for 2017 and beyond!:hearts::allthethings:. I miss seeing her so much!~

    I know! Reading that the self proclaimed nerd was a drama leader made me chuckle a bit. She's just too cute!

    I have a major girl-crush on Danai and I am in awe of her accomplishments. She is fierce and inspiring and seems brilliant and funny. I think if I ever went to a convention I would choose to meet her.
