Provoke chapter V: Home of the Brave
featuring Mark Zukerberg's FWD.US, Amadou Ly and Native Wayne Jobson
In 2014, you can expect to change "home" at least 2-3 times in your lifetime. So at any point, each of us experiences what it means to be the local and what it means to be the foreigner. We live in a country whose very identity would not exist were it not for the brave people who immigrated here first. That story continues around us today.
an evening celebrating the tapestry of local and immigrant residents that is American culture, specifically the influential fields of tech, film and music that identify Los Angeles as an "influencer" city.

Amadou Ly (actor, lyricist)
Amadou Ly was born in the beautiful country of Senegal. He attended University to study engineering. Being a shy young man, his friend suggested he could overcome his shyness by taking some acting classes. Amadou took his friend's advice and changed his degree to acting.
Life wasn't always so easy for Amadou; his mother abandoned him at age 14 to finish his American education. He was left to face a long immigration battle, but Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and others and volunteer lawyers saw his potential and helped grant him his visa.
Amadou played a role in Twilight Saga and is currently recording an album featuring a track dedicated to raise awareness to the plight of women in Nigeria.
