How were the artists chosen to go on pilgrimage?

It was a blessing to have Tego Calderon, Paul Wall and Wu Tang’s Raekwon travel to Sierra Leone. They represent the ethnic and cultural diversity found in the Americas, and as a filmmaker I felt it was important for the entire face of America to understand the weight of what has happened there. I think Tego, Paul and Raekwon’s “fish out of water” experience in Sierra Leone communicated emotions in a language that many people can understand-on and off screen.
