Singer-songwriter Natu Camara, who has been heralded as the "Tina Turner of Guinea," kicks off Duke Performances' 2020 Black Atlantic festival with a special lunchtime conversation and demonstration at NorthStar Church of the Arts. Moderated by Duke professor and Black Atlantic scholar Laurent Dubois, the conversation will explore Camara's career, influences, and longtime advocacy for women's empowerment - including in her native Guinea, where her foundation seeks to provide strong role models and mentorship for girls.
