12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o, who made a documentary about albinism in Kenya: [People with albinism] "are the one group of people that unify all races. Having come to the United States — it was the first time that I really had to consider myself as being black. To learn what my race meant. Because race is such an important part of understanding American society."


Here's the trailer for her film, In My Genes:



I was at Yale with Lupita and I can say that she is a really really great person. She and I did a public service fellowship together in New Haven one year and she is every bit as friendly and warm as her demeanor implies.
