The Mexican-born Kenyan will next appear in the anticipated “Star Wars: Episode VII —

The Public, the major Off Broadway non-profit that runs Shakespeare in the Park and launched the buzzmagnet musical “Hamilton”, is no stranger to big-name stars. “It is time to ban sales of ivory worldwide and to consign the tragedy of the ivory trade to history”, Nyong’o said in a statement, as quoted by WildAid.
