FOOTPRINTS OF PAN-AFRICANISM
Dir. Shirikiana Aina | 2017| USA| Full-length Doc | 77 min
The documentary “Footprints of Pan-Africanism” revisits the era of Ghana’s emergence into independence, when Africans on the continent and in the diaspora participated in building a liberated territory. This movement, rooted in the determination to reassert black people’s humanity and recover from the impact of slavery and colonialism, constituted an essential, indispensable part of the global Pan-African vision for liberation, which in the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s ushered in no less than a black political and Cultural Revolution. Footprints ultimately celebrates the challenges young generations continue to pose to those who have yet to pick up the baton of the great Pan-African dreamers.
