Ms. Kayne talks about her sources of inspiration, career, relationship with
audiences, Black Lives Matter, Greek identity, and what it was like growing
up African-Greek in Kypseli and Athens, in an interview by the journalist
and VOGUE Greece editor Giota Tachtara.

This is the second in our video series, "Generation G," an initiative of
the C.P. Cavafy Professorship to create a video series of original
interviews with creative people who self identify as Greek, and who are
working to make a difference in the world. Conversations center on their
work and broader thinking about their place in society today. The project
is a joint venture between the C.P. Cavafy Professorship and journalist
Giota Tachtara, who is a Vogue Greece editory. It incorporates audience
questions in anticipation of the video interviews.
