Jacques and Ayo meet for dinner in the city’s Greenwich Village talking all night about each other’s work walking through New York City.  But Jacques dominates the conversation about the strong Black women in his life starting with his mother and referencing African warrior women, the kind portrayed in the film Black Panther.  Jacques introduces MAME’s spirit to Ayo describing his family conjuring up African warrior women in Congo Square during annual family reunions.  Ayo, a NYC cop, is an African warrior woman of the modern era.
