Introducing the Bishop Crowther Project

Hello everyone,

I hope your year has started well. Here’s wishing you one of boundless opportunities.

The last quarter of 2021 was quite busy for me, specifically because I launched into a new project. This short not is me sharing highlights of it with you.

Here goes: last September, I launched the Bishop Crowther Documentary Film Project, to commemorate the 130th anniversary of the death (31 December 1891) of missionary, linguist and scholar, Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther.

Four months on, my team and I have made some progress with archival research and travels to the relevant historical landmarks — in Badagry. Ota, Abeokuta and Ibadan. We have also recorded some interviews.

All of these have been possible, thanks to donations we’ve received from our crowdfunding campaign.

However, there is still much to be done before work on the documentary is completed. To learn more about the inspiration for the project and support, you may check the following links:
