This video paints a portrait of a boy’s life with his father, while shedding light on the dark reality that he faces as an albino in Tanzania. Besides being rejected, ostracized, and persecuted due to superstitious beliefs, albinos in many areas of Africa live in fear of being hunted and killed, their body parts sold for medicinal use in witchcraft. This nightmare is a closely guarded reality that continues to threaten the lives of albinos in Tanzania and other areas of Sub-Saharan Africa. Authorities insist that this problem no longer exists, but the locals tell a very different story. There are still large numbers of albino children in hiding, and many compounds in Tanzania for albino children that as of recently are no longer allowed to be visited.

Proceeds from “Queen Mab” will be donated to organizations providing protection, healthcare, and educational services for albino children around the world.

“Queen Mab” Lyrics:

(words by William Shakespeare 1564 –1616
from Romeo & Juliet, music by Becca Stevens)

The cover of the wings of grasshoppers,
The traces of the smallest spider’s web,
The collars of the moonshine’s watery beams, ooh…

O, then, I see Queen Mab hath been with you.
She is the fairies’ midwife, and she comes
In shape no bigger than an agate-stone
On the fore-finger of an alderman,
Drawn with a team of little atomies
Athwart men’s noses as they lie asleep;
Her wagon-spokes made of long spinners’ legs,
The cover of the wings of grasshoppers,
The traces of the smallest spider’s web,
The collars of the moonshine’s watery beams,
Her whip of a cricket’s bone, the lash of film,
Her wagoner a small grey-coated gnat,
Not so big as a round little worm
Prick’d from the lazy finger of a maid;
Her chariot is an empty hazel-nut
Made by the joiner squirrel or old grub,
Time out o’ mind the fairies’ coach-makers.
And in this state she gallops night by night
Through lovers’ brains, and then they dream of love;
Over courtiers’ knees, that dream on court’sies straight,
Over lawyers’ fingers, who straight dream on fees,
Over ladies’ lips, who straight on kisses dream,
Which oft the angry Mab with blisters plagues,
Because their breaths with sweetmeats tainted are.
