1. Dr. Ivan Van Sertima- They Came Before Columbus**
This ground breaking, yet, controversial DVD is the documentary version of Dr. Van Sertima's book, of the same name, in which Van Sertima convincingly presents a plethora of information in the substantiation of his thesis: That Afrikans traveled to, and explored the western hemisphere centuries before the slave-trader, Christopher Columbus, or any other Europeans arrived in the Americas.
2. Dr. Amos N. Wilson- Black Power Or White Oppression
In this lecture DVD, Dr. Wilson breaks down the differences between Black Power and white oppression from a sociological view. He explains what WE must do to keep from being an oppressed people.
3. Dr. John Henrik Clarke- A Great And Mighty Walk**
Dr. Clarke provides a crash course in African history, beginning in ancient Egypt. Drawing from his personal experiences, he adds anecdote to objective history; Clarke was a participant in the Harlem Renaissance and knew the likes of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. He doesn't shy from criticism: King's passive resistance comes under fire, and the Million Man March comes under particularly scathing fire, and much, much more.
4. Black Wallstreet: Tulsa, Oklahoma 1921**
At the turn of the 20th cetury, Afrikans in america prospered throughout america. Because they could not shop nor do business in the white community, they built their own business districts wherera dollar would circulate within the community hundreds of times before it went out into a white community. This documentary is the story of the race riot or, more fittingly, massacre that occured in Tulsa, OK, at one pointthe oil capital of the world. Most of that oil was controlled by Blacks. Black millionaires owned businesses including oil companies, private airplanes, andbanks.It was not surprising back then for whites to have to go into "Black Wall Street" for a loan. Even though this is one of the most important events in american history, it is one of the least known and least taught/talked about events in history.
5. Slave Narratives
This documentary tells the stories of actual slaves through Afrikan-american actors who narrate each story over actual photos from their times.
6. The Spook Who Sat By The Door
A black man plays "Uncle Tom" in order to gain access to CIA training, then uses that knowledge to plot a new American Revolution
7. Dr. MarimbaAni- Yurugu
Within the nature of European culture there exists a statement of value or of "moral" behavior that has no meaning for the members of that culture. I call this the "rhetorical ethic;" it is of great importance for the understanding of the dynamics of the culture. The concepts of traditional European anthropology are inadequate to explain the phenomenon to which I am referring here, as it has no counterpart in the types of cultures to which anthropologists have generally directed their attention in the past. But with the concept of asili, which facilitates an ideological approach to the study of culture, the rhetorical ethic becomes visible; even compelling. It fits the logic of the European asili, assisting the culture in the achievement and maintenance of power. Without this interpretation certain manifestations within the verbal iconography of the culture appear to be inconsistent with its underlying ideological thrust. And that simply would not make sense. Let us see how the mechanism of the rhetorical ethic works.
8. Dr. John H. Clarke & Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan- "What Will We Tell Our Children Of Our Struggle?"**
Pretty much self explanitory. If you are familiar with either of thesebrilliant scholars then you know that this is one purchase that you will not regret.
9. Malcolm X: A Revolutionary Life
This 1972 documentary tribute to the life and work of the assassinated Muslim leader, Malcolm X, was poorly received at the time of its release. However, it has grown in importance as Malcolm's place in Afrikan-american history has grown. The backbone of the documentary is based on The Autobiography Of Malcolm X. This documentary, madewith the help of Malcolm's wife Betty Shabazz, recounts the life and ideas of this controversial man. James Earl Jones, Ossie Davis, and Steve Benderoth provide the narration. In addition to clips of Malcolm X in public interviews and speeches, numerous important civil rights figures are featured, as well as important public officials from the period.
10. Liberia: An Uncivil War
"Liberia, a nation burdened by its past. America, a nation with no memory at all." In Liberia, the summer of 2003 was pure insanity. A rebel army attempts to overthrow a government run by an indicted war criminal. Two armies engage in the final battle of a decade long civil war. Hundreds of innocent civilians die from mortar shells launched from afar and thousands more suffer hunger while the soldiers, mostly teenagers, keep the capital city under siege. The nation prays that America, the world's sole superpower, will put an end to the violence. Conceived in Washington in the early 1800s, its constitution written at Harvard, its founding fathers freed slaves who returned to Africa, Liberia is the one country in the world worthy of the title, Made in America. By the year 2000, Liberia, once considered the gem of Africa, was ranked last in the world for quality of life.
11. Iconoclasts: Dave Chappelle & Maya Angelou**
Two cultural icons from two opposite walks of life sit down for a very interestingcoversation on issues ranging from African-americanhistory to politics to music.
12. 500 Years Later**
Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health, and underdevelopment plagues people of African descent 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.
Starring: Francis Cress Welsing, Maulana Karenga, Muhammad Shareef , Nelson George, Paul Robeson, Jr. Molefi Asante , and more…
13. A Panther In Africa
On October 30, 1969, Pete O'Neal, a young Black Panther in Kansas City, Missouri, was arrested for transporting a gun across state lines. One year later, O'Neal fled the charge, and for over 30 years, he has lived in Tanzania, one of the last American exiles from an era when activists considered themselves at war with the U.S. government. Today, this community organizer confronts very different challenges and finds himself living between two worlds - America and Africa, his radical past and his uncertain future.
SANKOFA is an Akan word that means, one must return to the past in order to move forward. Mona, a contemporary model, is
possessed by spirits lingering in the Cape Coast Castle in Ghana and travels to the past, where, as a house servant called Shola she is constantly abused by the slave master. Nunu, an African-born field hand, and Shango, Sholas West Indian Lover, continuously rebel against the slave system. For Nunu this means direct conflict with her son, a mulatto benefitting from the system as a head slave. Inspired by Nunu and Shangos determination to defy the system, Shola finally takes her fate into her own hands.
15. Dr. Ishakamusa Barashango- European Holidays: A Mental Genocide
Dr. Barashango is a historian in the Black liberation struggle and a citizen of the Republic of New Afrika. The brother turns those he
lectures to, into whole beings of mind, body and spirit. He puts biblical characters and lands in perspective, while providing a wealth
of information about the Mother and Father force known as the Creator.
This lecture by Dr. Barashango is most imperative for any person of Afrikan descent because it deals with one of the most crucial issues plagueing Afrikans, both continental anddiasporic. European ideals and holidays influence the Afrikan far more than they should. This lecture will open the eyes of the blindest, most naive, most brainwashed brotha or sista alive!
16. Can We Face The New World Order?- A Dr. John Henrik Clarke lecture
One of Dr. Clarke's many lectures focuses on the Afrikan's place in the world right now in comparison to where WE should be and how to regain our status of greatness in the world. He very thoroughly breaks down how we can reconstruct what slavery and colonialism took away. Dr. Clarke touches on subjects such as values and customs of culture that WE have discarded, and the definition of civilization.
"You can change your position without changing your condition... we are further behind now than we were before the civil rights movement..."
17. The Emmet Till Story
18. The Black Athena Debate DVD feat. JOHN HENRIK CLARKE**
This debate, featuring Dr. John Henrik Clarke, is based upon the book "Black Athena", based on the Afrikan influence of the Greek and Roman empire,written by Martin Bernal. So much has been made of Dr. Bernal's book that there have been "comeback" books- so to speak- by various arthors and professors. Mary Lefkowitz and Guy Rogers are only 2 of the writers that have responded who are featured in this debate forum. Martin Bernal is fortunate to have had Dr. John Henrik Clarke backing him up in this debate although a scholar of his stature can easily hold his own. Even if you have never read "Black Athena", this debate is not to be missed!
19. Khalid Abdul Muhammad: The State Of The Black Race
Minister Khalid Abdul Muhammad holds a rally/lecture, with various guest speakers, on the subject of the state of the Black race; Black on Black violence, "democracy and us", etc.
20. Assata Shakur: "The Eyes Of The Rainbow"**
"Eyes of the Rainbow" deals with the life of Assata Shakur, the Black Panther and Black Liberation Army leader who escaped from prison and was given political asylum in Cuba, where she has lived for close to 15 years. In it we visit with Assata in Havana and she tells us about her history and her life in Cuba. This film is also about Assata's AfroCuban context, including the Yoruba Orisha Oya, goddess of the ancestors, of war, of the cemetary and of the rainbow.
In this documentary,Assata recounts aspects of her path as relentless warrior. You will get acquainted with Assata Shakur through the symbols of AfroCuban culture, which offer us beautiful songs evoking the ancestors.
Representations of the Yoruba warrior orishas such as Oya and Ochosi support the discourse of this story, which also has its moments of poetry and tenderness as in the dance of Oshun, through which is illustrated Assata's decision to become mother while still in prison.
21. Letter To The President**
This feature-length documentary showcases hip-hop's close-knit ties to America's social and political policies in the last thirty years. Even before hip-hop, black musical artists of the past have been at the forefront of civil rights and black power movements of the late '60s and '70s. See how those movements were destroyed by the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover, and witness rap's birth from those movements and its own progression from being music heard at weekend block parties to its lyrics being debated in the halls of Congress. Letter to the President delves deeply into President Ronald Reagan's policies that negatively affected minority communities and inspired pioneer rap artists such as Grandmaster Melle Mel and Run DMC to tell the whole world about it in song. Then in the "glamorous" '80s, as some people prospered and many minority communities suffered, artists such as Russell Simmons struggled to get laws overturned that targeted those minorities.
Narrated by: Snoop Dogg
Starring: KRS-One, Common, M-1 of dead prez, Chuck D,50 Cent, Jay-Z,David Banner, Michael Eric Dyson, Saigon (the brotha drops some real knowledge!), Dr. Mutulu Shakur, and many more!
22. Ashra Kwesi: "The Great Debate"- The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ, Myth Or Reality**
This is the video of a lively debate on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ - Myth or Reality. It is an exciting exchange of ideas between Ashra Kwesi Vs. Pastor Colin Akridge, held at The Vision Theater in Los Angeles.
23. The Isis Papers DVD - By Dr. Francis Cress Welsing **
This profound lecture by Dr. Welsing is based on her book of the same name- "The Isis Papers". This lecture is a vital exploration into the genesis and genetics of hate/white supremacy.
"Racism (white supremacy) is the local and global power system and dynamic, structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciouly determined; which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action and emotional response, as conducted simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and war); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survival and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet Earth - a planet upon which the vast and overwhelming majority of people are classified as nonwhite (black, brown, red and yellow) by white skinned people, and all of the nonwhite people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin colloration) compared to the genetic recessive white skin people."
- Dr. Francis Cress Welsing
24. The Genocide Of Native Americans**
This 92 minute documentarypresents a chronological compilation of the European colonization and genocide against Native Americans from Columbus to the present day. This is the only documentary about the conflict between Europeans and Native Americans that presents a clear, balanced, and fair analysis of the events that began in 1492 and continue even today."War against The Indians"presents a disturbing look at North America's past and present history, but laces the story with messages of hope for the future. Despite being a lengthy documentary it is highly entertaining as well as very informative, and features such famous Native American entertainment figures as Graham Greene and Russel Means (to name a couple). You should plan on watching it from start to finish, because you WILL want to. This one is a must for those with ties to or interest in Native American culture, society, and history. I strongly encourage college and university students taking Native American history classes to get this one and learn the REAL history.
25. Dr. John Henrik Clarke: Afrika In The 20th Century**
One of Dr. Clarke's many lectures focuses onthe state of Afrikain the 20th century. Dr. Clarke talks about Afrikans who have betrayed their own people, and the result of such betrayal. European agenda- apartheid-withinAfrika also comes under fire.
A dramatization depicting the early days of the Black Panther movement of the '60s and its violent, controversial struggle against racism in America which earned them J. Edgar Hoover's "Public Enemy Number 1" status. Though it contains fictional persons and events, it also does a good job at depicting actual events surrounding Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale and the Black Panther Party for Self Defense.
Starring: Kadeem Hardison, Courtney B. Vance, Bokeem Woodbine, Marcus Chong, Dick Gregory, and Angela Basset as Betty Shabazz
27. William Cooper: Behold A Pale Horse
A rare seminar by the late, great, William Cooper originally filmed in 1991. The image quality is not great, but is adequate, and clarity of Bill Cooper's mind more than makes up for it. As most are aware, Bill Cooper was reportedly killed in a shootout with authorities on 5 November, 2001. (Whether this was an assassination is unknown, but many speculate that it was.) However, his knowledge survived and his legacy lives on!
The audio is clear as Cooper covers a great deal of territory in this rare, live presentation. Those familiar with his book "Behold A Pale Horse" know that Bill Cooper was one of the pioneers of New World Order research. His background in Naval Intelligence and love of America fueled his drive to expose the corrupt globalist element that has hijacked our country and is planning to establish a world-wide dictatorship.
Cooper talks about UFOs and secret technology, the shadow government of Illuminati elitists, and about the end of freedom that is likely if they get their way. He talks about Area 51, the JFK assassination, and the Council on Foreign Relations. Who runs the media? Can the Constitution be legally suspended? Can a president declare martial law and turn America into a police state? This dvd is an excellent resource alone or as a companion to his book.
