“I want to create opportunities for other people of color because I’m fortunate enough to have a platform to do that. That is why Eclipsed and even Queen of Katwe are so important, to change the narrative, offer a new lens on African identity,” she said to Vogue.

As the cover star of Vogue‘s October issue, the actress traveled back to her hometown in Kenya for a beautiful scenic photo shoot that also featured her family. Shot by Mario Testino, Lupita wears brightly colored printed dresses and turbans, giving a nod to her African roots. The location for this photo shoot wasn’t accidental, as the actress is promoting her new filmQueen of Katwe, where she plays the mother of real-life Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi.

Let’s take a look of the photos
