“Until the Lion tells his tale the hunt will always glorify the hunter”- African proverb
Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health, and underdevelopment plagues people of African decent 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, 500 Years Later examines 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.
