Who In Da Mornin

The second in a series of love letters to Black people living in the diaspora, Who in Da Mornin’ takes us to the Bahamas where Junkanoo, a musical street parade based on West African culture, is the highlight of every Boxing Day and New Year’s Day celebration. 2022 will mark the first widely celebrated Junkanoo festival since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through artful storytelling, interviews, and cinema verité, Filmmakers Philip Williamson Jr. and Jonathan Isaac Jackson embark  on a discovery of Junkanoo, illustrating  that it is not only influenced by the traditions and cultures of West Africa, but also uncovers the complicated relationship between Europe, Africa, and The Bahamas from the inception of slavery to the current symbols of celebration and national identity.




The Queen of Junkanno Angelique McKay and The Genesis Warhawks navigate Junkanoo for the first time in 2 years as the culture and history of The Bahamas, as well as its connections to the African Diaspora are explored.

Written and Directed by Philip Williamson Jr. and Jonathan Isaac Jackson

Produced by Paul V. Fishback, Jaime Blanson, Sarah Daggett, Angelique Mckay, and Williamson x Jackson
