Making art is one of the earliest memories for Omar Farah ’23. They were raised by a mother with a talent for painting and drawing, and their childhood home’s basement was an art studio. This early exposure to artistic practice quickly proved itself to be quite influential: Farah remembers filling their sketchbook with fashion designs and forcing their younger sisters to star in their feature-length home movies from an early age. For them, practicing and engaging with art was never a question.
Leonard Wantchekon is a politics professor. Over the past year, he consulted with the makers of “The Woman King,” the new historical drama about a group of all-female warriors from the West African kingdom of Dahomey, to ensure the film’s historical accuracy. The Daily Princetonian spoke with Wantchekon about his involvement with the film, and how its subject matter relates to his current research projects and personal life. The interview has been edited slightly for clarity and concision.

Bernadette Suski-Harding loved to knit — at least, until she adopted her now-14-year-old daughter. Knitting and a then-two-year-old child were not exactly compatible, so the former took a backseat. She wanted to maintain some other creative outlet, however, so she thought she’d try playing with wire and pearls. Now, her wired creations are being sold at Princeton Makes, a new local arts cooperative.
As we spring right into March, welcome back to the fifth installment of Intersections, a newsletter run by The Prospect section of The Daily Princetonian dedicated to delivering arts and culture to your inbox.
Shaka King has made his directorial debut with “Judas and the Black Messiah,” a biopic detailing the betrayal of the chairman of the Black Panther Party’s Illinois chapter Fred Hampton, portrayed by Daniel Kaluuya, in the late 1960s. The film is told from the perspective of undercover FBI informant William O’Neal, portrayed by LaKeith Stanfield, whose infiltration of the chapter ultimately leads to Hampton’s assassination.
I had never used Facebook before coming to Princeton.
Highways, hills, and houses fly past, drowned by sunlight into indiscernible shapes, colorful blurs in my vision, which struggles to work at optimum capacity before 9 a.m. The only reason why I would ever get up this early, aside from anxiously skimming my poor forgotten readings, is if I were given the opportunity to travel. So when I saw the email from the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding about a day trip that would allow me to step foot in Washington, D.C., for the first time, I begrudgingly set my alarm for 6 a.m. on Sunday morning.

I never knew how fortunate I was to grow up in Detroit. With a population that’s 80 percent African-American, its businesses cater to the dominant demographic. Practically every major street is lined with beauty supply shops, stocked in abundance with hair extensions, conditioners, hair masks, gels, bonnets, and silk scarves — all for the purpose of protecting and beautifying Afro-textured hair.
