DIASPORA FILM FESTIVAL COMMUNITY SCREENINGS : HAYTI HERITAGE CENTER, 804 OLD FAYETTEVILLE ST, DURHAM

The Diaspora Festival of Black and Independent Film presents:

KEMTIYU: CHEIKH ANTA

Dir: Ousmane William Mbaye |2016 | Senegal | Full-length Doc | 94 min

Historian and scientist Cheikh Anta Diop argued that ancient Egyptians were Black through linguistics and carbon dating. He was also a fervent Pan Africanist who called for the United States of Africa. With original music score by pianist Randy Weston, this beautifully presented portrait is a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to the restoration of Africa’s historical significance and dignity.
