Happy Web Series Wednesday!
I really enjoying this web series entitled The Name Project. According to the director Antoinette Brock:
The Name Project seeks to understand how our names shape our character and the role it plays in our identity. Some reflect our cultural backgrounds. Others are indicative of our parents’ values, interest and ideologies. We all have a name, that subsequently has a story.
Below are some episodes of The Name Series Project.
“I never thought something being unique would be considered ghetto.”
“I don’t really have any complaints about my name, it’s usually a great conversation starter.”
“The name itself does not fully describe me.”
“It wasn’t until I was like early adulthood that I started taking more ownership of my name.”
“So my name Ekow, that means I’m male a born on a Thursday.”
