Movie Reviews

A Very Intelligent, Thought-provoking Documentary
G. Jennings | Outside | 02/07/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A critically acclaimed documentary that has won Best Film and Best Documentary in four separate film festivals world-wide. Black professors, psychologists, artists, and writers from around the world give very frank, thought-provoking commentaries about the residual effects of the slave culture on Blacks worldwide: Americans, Africans, Barbadan, Brits, French, etc. It starts with a brief recap of slave history that everyone knows about then expounds further on how the institutionalization of blacks into Western white culture and a disconnection from African roots has psychologically left a dramatic void in the Black identity. The documentary very frankly and intellectually addresses this condition, its reasons, it effects, it causes, the social and psychological impact and uplifts us to embrace being black but realizing the necessity to reconnect with our African Identity and values as African peoples. Education, of course, is the very key to that., and how the lack of it kills the ability of our advancement.

Highly recommended, well-researched documentary that is a must see."

"And its truly what documentaries like this are made for idiots like Donald Peyton from Virginia. But I'm sure he is a card carrying member of the Jewish Holocaust Museum. Sad to say he is JUST the reason we need this type of literature circulating..GREAT MATERIAL!!!"
