Ratings & Reviews
- African Slavery by Dr. Kimani Nehusi
- Tukufu Suberi interview - How Many
In an effort to encourage children and leaders to work towards a more stable future for generations to come, filmmaker Owen Alik Shahadah explores the history of atrocities which resulted when, 500 years ago, countless Africans were forced to migrate from their continent. Interviews with such notable figures as cultural activist Dr. Maulana Karenga, Hidden History author Andrew Muhammad, writer Dr. Francis Wesling, and Dr. Molefi K. Asante, the father of Afrocentricity, and interviews with everyday laypeople are inter-cut to offer telling insight into the conflicts brought about by racial inequalities. Accompanying these interviews are a broad spectrum of images from the beaches of Barbados to the streets of London and the cities of the United States, as well as a haunting score by composer Tunde Jegede. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
