British Vogue: I Carry Hope


“Hope abounds,” Edward Enninful writes in his editor’s letter introducing the September 2020 issue of British Vogue, which spotlights incredible activists – from Marcus Rashford to Patrisse Cullors to Angela Davis to Alice Wong – and their world-changing work. Some of those inspiring leaders join the likes of Billy Porter, Yara Shahidi, Kendrick Sampson and Captain Sir Thomas Moore in this uplifting short film, to share the reasons why, in a year that has brought so much darkness, they remain hopeful for a better future. Directed by Emily McDonald and narrated by spoken word poet Kai-Isaiah Jamal and composed by Nimmo, the video serves as a welcome celebration of our capacity for joy, connection and above all, hope.
