Gillean Opoku puts Australians of African descent on the map….

THE AFROKLECTIC PROJECT: Experiential Research from AFROKLECTIC on Vimeo.

I spoke to the ever fabulous Gillean Opoku a hundred years ago and she didn’t disappoint, I on the other hand might have disappointed her (laughter).. Honestly if it wasn’t for Gillean Opoku the founder of Afroklectic and Love Kyei the founder of, ‘Makings of Me’ ( I soooo wouldn’t know what black folks in Australia are up to with regards to lifestyle/popular culture etc.

Anyway since I spoke to Ms Opoku -she’s grown from strength-to-strength and is the go-to-person on all things ‘black Australian’ for the world’s media (I kid you not)…and I’m sooo proud of her…. Go Gillean Opoku ….I’m loving her surname by the way…..
