Danai Gurira on Telling New Stories | BREAKING BIG | PBS

Official website: | #BreakingBigPBS
Between The Walking Dead and the worldwide phenomenon that is Black Panther, Danai Gurira is in high demand. But for her, the success isn’t as important as the opportunity to share the untold stories about her homeland, Zimbabwe.

See how Tony Award-nominated writer Gurira made the leap from storyteller to Hollywood superstar. The Zimbabwe native yearned to bring African faces and voices to Broadway through her plays, but ended up starring in the mega-hit “Black Panther.” Breaking Big airs Fridays at 8:30/7:30c
