#IAmAnImmigrant: Lupita Nyong’o, Akon and Adepero Oduye Celebrate Their African Heritage

As a reminder that nearly all American citizens share a common immigrant heritage, one organization gathered more than 50 high-profile celebrities to be a part of the “I Am An Immigrant” campaign.
So actresses in Oscar-winning film “12 Years a Slave” Lupita Nyong’o and Adepero Oduye along with Senegalese rapper-philanthropist Akon joined forces with a cadre of celebs such as Kerry Washington, Tracee Ellis Ross, Estelle, and Rosario Dawson to make a video marking June as Immigrant History Month. It’s been celebrated for three years, but President Obama made it official last year.
