The divide between Africans and African Americans is complex and seldom explored. Opening with personal testimonials that expose this rift, Bound: Africans vs. African Americans traces the roots of African colonialism and African-American enslavement, laying bare their effects and how these have divided and bound Africans and African Americans. Weaving historical narrative with personal dialogue, Owino’s critically acclaimed directorial debut brings these differences to the fore, illuminating the cultures’ shared history to foster mutual understanding. Discussion with  Jackie Akunda (U.Va.), Alesha Cooper (U.Va.), and Kwame Otu (U.Va.)
