Look What Donald Glover is Whippin’ Up in Season 2 of ‘ATLANTA’
by Nile Fortner
Donald Glover a.k.a Childish Gambino has been blowing up bigger than ever in the mainstream with his “This is America” music video and with his take on the iconic Star Wars character Lando in Solo: A Star Wars Story, a role that was originally played by Billy Dee Williams. Donald Glover also gave us a new season of the hit FX show Atlanta. Much like Glover, the cast of Atlanta has been blowing up as well, with Zazie Beetz as Domino in the recent film Deadpool 2 and Get Out star Lakeith Stanfield most recently in the new film, Sorry to Bother You.

History is written by the victors and those with power. Significant events in the lives of ordinary citizens often go missing from news reports, calendars, and textbooks. But May 11th, 2018 was a monumental date. The Last Witness, Polish-Anglo writer and director Piotr Szkopiak’s second film, opened in Poland that day. Red carpet arrivals and press coverage mattered little compared to the importance of Szkopiak’s mother being present to watch the film.
