Profile/Description
Akosua Asamoabea Ampofo is a film student at Bryn Mawr College and also a client at Blue Sage. On April 21, 2018, she filmed a project at Blue Sage called "Living Legends".

This is how Akosua describes it: "This film project seeks to follow the journey of hip-hop as a means to express some of the sentiments and social influences of rap and hip hop and how it has been and continues to be used as a mouthpiece to tell the stories of young black people (in particular), by following a Philadelphia based rap group called Hardwork Movement. Hardwork Movement is a group that “is inclusive, original, and inspires all listeners to strive towards uniqueness in all that they do”. In order to see how these themes in rap have been communicated to people, this film will also talk to people in the Philadelphia area, discussing the legacy of hip hop and what it means to them as individuals and as members of the greater American community."
