    500 Years Later

    Saturday, February 24th 3-5 pm.

    Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health, and underdevelopment plagues people of African decent 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.

    Namaste' Sami_RaMaati.

    I ALMOST wish i was in the States! i have been searching for some of these films, especially the Black Athena debate, for months! i read some literature Lefkowitz wrote called 'Not Out of Africa' in there she disputes the notion that Greek philosophy was stolen from Kemet; i heard through the grapevine that she got served! on this film..so I've been searching for it.


    BTW if you have any info, on the Ausar Auset Society in London let me know.

    Come on down!

    Tomorrow--Feb 10--we'll be showing "The Black Athena Debate" featuring John Henrik Clarke and Martin Bernal.

    In addition, we're considering a repeat of last week's film "First People, Our People: Ancient Egypt Revealed" because Dr. Asa Hilliard's presentation was outstanding and compelling.

    I'm not quite ready academically. It's on my "to do" list. At some point in the not too distant future, I plan to undertake the study of ancient greek language, philosophy, history and culture at the university level, but that will take a couple of years at least. It's best to do it this way because mastery of the subject matter is of the utmost importance prior to attempting to teach on any topic.
