My Conversation With Danai Gurira

Tonight on PBS, I sit down with award-winning playwright and actress Danai Gurira. In addition to giving us a peek into the upcoming season premiere of The Walking Dead, she talks about African representation in the movies and her critically acclaimed role in the upcoming movie Mother of George.

In the clip below, Gurira talks about African expression on American soil and the cultural differences between Africans and African Americans.

For more of our conversation, be sure to tune in to "Tavis Smiley" tonight on PBS. Check out our website for your local TV listings: After the show, tweet me @TavisSmiley #DanaiGurira and let me know what you thought about our conversation.
