Nnegest Likké

Éthiopie, États-Unis

Français

HOLLYWOOD, 9 Mar 2006 (African Tribune) –
If the late, Ethiopian freedom fighter Dr. Senay Likké could see his daughter now, he would be so proud.
Following in her father’s revolutionary footsteps, Nnegest Likké is fighting a revolution of her own. But there are no guns. This revolution is being fought on the big screen, right in Hollywood’s front yard.
Born and raised in Oakland, California but having spent a significant amount of time as a child with her father’s family in Ethiopia, Nnegest is intimately familiar with both sides of the cultural coin. « On one side I am wholly African American. But flip me over and I am wholly African, » Nnegest says.
