Donald Glover, also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, set social media ablaze with his incendiary video This is America. The audaciously bold performance piece was directed by Hiro Murai. Doomsday with Ibra Ake and Fam Rothstein of Wolf + Rothstein produced it and is most likely responsible for casting SZA to play Lady LibertyAfter premiering the visuals on Saturday Night Live May 5, the FX Atlanta creator sparked continuous conversation about the Jim Crow-esque visuals that landed #THISISAMERICA in the #1 trending topic spot on Twitter May 6. In addition to this crowning achievement the quadruple threat and his subversive video about being Black in America received over 17 million views in two days.
