Nyong’o shares her experience coming to America. She reflects on how important it is to her to see herself as Black now that she is in America, after studying albinism.
Albinism in particular was an interesting subject because they’re the one group of people that unify all races. Having come to the United States was the first time that I really had to consider myself as being black and to learn what my race meant. Because race is such an important part of understanding American society.
