GUAP Arts & Culture creative Aji Ayorinde took a trip to meet Temi in Grahame Park Estate – where she grew up and where The 4Front Project was birthed from the tragedy of the death of her friend Marvin Henry, who was fatally shot dead in 2010. They spoke about her plans and what she has been working on, all things activism, and what freedom means to her. Check out what she had to say.[Photo w/ credit to Ibrahim]
