AML 010: US Visas for African Artists and Entertainers with Attorney Fatmata Barrie


First, A VERY WARM WELCOME to friends, family, and well wishers of Attorney Fatmata Barrie who is our special guest for this episode.

Second, for my AML fans/readers/listeners, I am “dulling” o. My apologies for not having even more diverse mediums available to you all, especially those of you on ITunes. I do want to make it as easy as possible for you to listen whether during your morning commutes, walking your dogs or what have you. It is just taking a little longer to have iTunes delete the old feed since I got it wrong and publish the new one, among other things. Bear with me. In the meantime, I moved forward with a definitive media hosting choice. Check it out and enjoy the episode.

Don’t forget to leave your thoughts, you can also email me with them so I can share on the show; and also keep the conversation going on your own social media pages.

I’ll see you all later this Friday. Stay blessed.

Cheers,
Uduak
