      500 Years Later


      Storyline

      Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health, and underdevelopment plagues people of African descent globally - Why? 500 years later from the onset of Slavery and subsequent Colonialism, Africans are still struggling for basic freedom-Why? Filmed in five continents, and over twenty countries, 500 Years Later engages the authentic retrospective voice, told from the African vantage-point of those whom history has sought to silence by examining the collective atrocities that uprooted Africans from their culture and homeland. 500 Years Later is a timeless compelling journey, infused with the spirit and music of liberation that chronicles the struggle of a people who have fought and continue to fight for the most essential human right - freedom.

      I showed this to my class here in Ghana at AUCC. Very good discussion ensued. We stayed talking about the concept of "Memory Replacement" as discussed by Maulana Karenga in the Doc. That is a MAJOR issue here as everywhere a people are schooled by their enemies or who have had their schools set up by their enemies.

      This was my first time seeing it though I had known about it for some time. Thanks to you for this post. And I had no idea that African (Diasporan) Brits were just as strong in their gestures and speech as we are. It may have a different feel but it is just as soulful. It just goes to show, you can take the African out of Africa but.... So I think I'll be paying a LOT more attention to my Diasporan Brothers in Britain.

      Glad you liked it.

      Although many Afrikans have been scattered throughout the diaspora, and there are differences because of this, deep down our essence is still the same - it can’t change, it’s hereditary. Gestures and speech are just two of the many ways that may show that common spirit. So yep, no doubt, We Are One in the Same No Matter Where We Are!!!

      Oh, and like you should for all people, make sure you size 'em up right (always gotta show & prove).



      Asante

      Hulu is a jerk like that. You have to use a proxy program like JonDo or YourFreedom to get around that.
