This Sunday: Black History Month Documentary Screening and Discussion: Ni Wakati / It’s Time

Original post made by Alicia Crank, Rex Manor, on Feb 13, 2012

An inspiring story that re-introduces Africa's rich diversity to the rest of the world, as M1 (Dead Prez) and Umi (P.O.W.) travel to East Africa and connect with Ukoofulani Mau Mau, a revolutionary youth movement of artists in the slums of Nairobi.

Through music, food and culture they break mistaken myths about Africa and collectively travel to Tanzania to connect with former Black Panther members Mzee Pete O'Neal and Mama Charlotte O'Neal. Interviews with Geronimo Ji Jaga, Davey D, Toni Blackman, Binyavanga Wainaina, and more.

This is a great film for young people to see.

Screening is courtesy of the Silicon Valley African Film Festival.
