Ilfenesh Hadera stars in Spike Lee's new joint on Netflix #EthiopiansInNewYork

Growing up in New York City helped Hadera embrace her identity as the daughter of an acupuncturist and an Ethiopian refugee. “I identify as half Ethiopian, half white. I’m equal parts. I hear so many biracial people say, ‘I didn’t know where I fit in.’ But I grew up in Harlem and went to school on the Upper West Side, where half the students looked like me. I consider myself lucky to have lived in this bubble.”
