H/T Black in NRW: An interview with German filmmaker, actress, and moderator Mo Asumang. She is well known in Germany due to her documentary movies and TV moderation. Recently she has gained International exposure being featured in Roman Polanski's movie "The Ghostwriter" playing Condoleezza Rice.
In the interview with Fareed Khimani, she talks about herself and about her city Berlin. They also visit the multicultural festivities on labour day in the famous immigrant neighbourhood Kreuzberg. According to Asumang the special thing about the festivities on labour day is that you always have riots between Neo-Nazis, left-wing people and the police.
But Kreuzberg is also the home of the Carnival of Cultures http://www.karneval-berlin.de
