Our guest today is Kojo Annan: a successful serial entrepreneur, investor, change maker and father. He is the son of the inspirational global leader, the late former UN Secretary-General: Kofi Annan. In this episode we explore how his family values have affected the way Kojo conducts business, his view on manufacturing, and brand-building in Africa.
This episode is hosted by Dulma Clark, who runs our Livebarefoot Foundation, as we discuss his recent open letter to the UN on racial justice and equality in relation to our Basquiat collection launch. This collection was influenced by Dulma’s visit to the Basquiat exhibition at the Guggenheim museum, displaying photographs, documents, and artwork relating to the death of Michael Stewart from his injuries incurred while in police custody in 1983 - fast forward to 2020, and the world is still crying for empathy, justice and equality for all.
