VIDEO: THE CHAOS TWINS Are Joined by Ifeoma Ike, Esq. of Pink Cornrows and Black Policy Lab
Tune in on Wednesday for even more chaos.
This week, the chaos continues with "The Chaos Twins" with Sasha Hutchings and Nik Walker. What's it all about? "In a world of extremes, where the divides are deep and the struggles are real, sometimes, the only way back to the calm... is Chaos," say Sasha and Nik.
"Enter The Chaos Twins. Join us, two Broadway artists/goofballs, as we break through the noise and break down current events, with our unique brand of humor and insight. A talk show filled with special guests, non-sequiturs, stories, trivia and more, all aimed to help us find our true north again... by any means necessary."
Tune in today, October 21 (4pm ET) to watch the next episode right here at BroadwayWorld. This week's special guest is Ifeoma Ike, Esq.- Founder, Pink Cornrows and Black Policy Lab.
Ifeoma Ike, better known as "Ify," is a social impact entrepreneur, attorney and artist. A hyphenated creative, Ify has founded several efforts focused on deepening equity, and is the Founder and Chief Equity Weaver of Pink Cornrows, which uses research, data and policy with indigenous mindsets to create safer spaces for those on the margins. In 2019, Ify was recognized by Vanity Fair x HBO as one of two "Because of Her" recipients for her civil and human rights work, which includes organizing relief efforts after the devastating 2010 Haiti earthquake, serving on the Ferguson Legal Defense Committee and facilitating the creation of the Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls in response to the tragedy around Sandra Bland's death. A frustrated writer, Ify struggles to find time to balance art with activism, but her first stageplay, "Jonah" was one of the winning entries in the NAACP Hollywood chapter's Black playwright's competition. Ify channels her creativity as a creative impact advisor, and has co-directed pieces honoring human rights leaders including Nelson Mandela, addressing voting and raising awareness on the criminal legal system. A New Jersey native, Ify lives in Brooklyn with her dog, Bishop.
