To teach the next generation about historical individuals and culture, Austen-Peters has been getting more involved in biopics. This year she also released Funmilayo Ransom-Kuti, a biopic she directed based on the political activist.

She said in an interview with Pulse Nigeria, “For me, growing up you hear a lot about American heroes, you hear about Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, and Winnie Mandela, you’re asking yourself, ‘Where are the Nigerian heroes?’ It’s important that we begin to tell those stories. A lot of our children do not have that historical perspective. They don’t get these stories, because we’re not producing enough of them.
