Ark Republic’s first podcast interviews Nmadili Okwumabua, an urban planner and founder of research company, Sub Sahara. As a professor and researcher who travels between Atlanta and Abuja, Okwumabua advocates to expand and develop modern African architecture.

Upon the recommendation of an admirer of her work, Okwumabua converged her exhibition of African architecture with the Black Panther Marvel film into a poster series.
