If you want more from Amandla, check her out in the latest edition of DAZED magazine, where she is dropping more knowledge on why she uses her platform on social media to educate and inform her followers:
“I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently because, growing up having this platform, I feel a consistent responsibility to utilise it well. I think, for a long amount of time, the most effective thing was to use my platform to speak out openly about the topics that were important to me, such as cultural appropriation, black women feeling their power and learning how to have self-confidence – especially black teenage girls.”
