Chiké Okonkwo  Man.

Spring in my step in this new year. Grateful for all the joy, challenges, blessings, lean times, victories and lessons learned. Grateful to be living my life on purpose, and for a strengthening connection to the source that gave me that purpose in the first place. Grateful to those of you I call my friends. Grateful to be able to call some of you my family, blood or not. Grateful to the wonderful artists I’ve gotten to create with. Grateful to those of you who I’m yet to meet, who take the time to look at the parts of my life that I share here. I’m enjoying the journey and can see more than ever that things really do work together for good. I appreciate you all. -CO. 3/18.

Double feature Friday. Two phenomenal films that I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this past week. Two phenomenal films that I’ll be seeing again this weekend. Thank you to all involved in telling these compelling, magical, hilarious, unique stories. Gringo: @davidoyelowo @nashedgerton @joeledgerton. Bravo. Wrinkle: @ava @tendo @gugumbatharaw @davidoyelowo (again). Bravo.
Also; I’m trying this new thing where I put my hand in my pocket in pictures to try and distract from the fact that I’ve been photographed in all of these clothes before. Mixing. It. Up. #happyfriday

Quick moment of advice: want to get really good at something? Learn from the best! @davidoyelowo the best man, father, actor I know (in that order). And the supremely talented @yvonneorji the best at not scheduling coffee catch ups!
Go watch @gringomovie it’s out in cinemas this Friday March 9th.

Pointing the way. Be definite.
Happy New Year to one. To all.

Have faith...

This royal throne of kings, this scepter'd isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall,
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessèd plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

I have so much to say about this incredible young man. Jerry was one of the honorees at Thursday nights #childrensdefensefund #beattheodds #gala. I first met him when @emmjaay21 was directing the great short documentary about him that was shown at the gala, and I just about managed to not cry when presenting him with his award (in fact, the big smile was so I wouldn’t cry). Some of the odds he has beaten include;
• heart failure
• a subsequent coma and heart transplant
• custody hearings • separation from his family
• foster care
Yet, Jerry has never allowed these things to define him. Thank you Jerry, for teaching me that there are no circumstances too big to stop me from reaching for those things that matter to me most. Education matters to Jerry. MIT will be a better place with you there.

The word legend is used far too much in my opinion. But #MarianWrightEdelman is definitely worthy of the title. The first Black woman admitted to the bar in Mississippi, and a career long advocate of eradicating poverty by her work with young people through the #childrensdefensefund. To quote her... "If you don’t like the way the world is, you have an obligation to change it. Just do it one step at a time." Amen to that.

Beyond proud to stand next to this giant of a woman. #SusanBurton and her #ANewWayofLife initiative help with the successful re-entry into society of thousands of formerly incarcerated women, providing safe homes and reuniting these women with their children and putting lives back together when so many seem to want to tear them apart. I’m humbled to be back in LA presenting at her Gala tonight. #BecomingMsBurton

“It is our duty to fight for our freedom.
It is our duty to win.
We must love each other and support each other.
We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

(2) As I join with family in the San Fernando Valley today, I’ll be grateful for all the food, for 90 degree weather in November 😳, and for the tribes who’s lands I am privileged to be on. I hope all of you, including my Native Brothers and Sisters, have a great day. #chumash #kitanemuk #assatashakur #thanksgiving #map #aaroncarapella #ineedsomelotiononthoseelbows

A year ago this week, the three of us, myself, @kendrick38 and @mattmcgorry set off to #StandingRock after watching our feeds in horror at the #militarizedpolice attacks on the #waterprotectors at the #ocetisakowin camp in North Dakota. That week changed my life, my world view, and what I see as my responsibilities as an artist and a man with privilege. It has lead me to a group of artists and activists so kind, so courageous and so motivated to lead with love in shaping the world around us. And I couldn’t feel more blessed about it. Hope you all have a wonderful week. #thankful #iwillharness #mniwiconi
